Residents draw to the attention of the existing petition calling for the renaming of two parks:- 1. The riverside parkland at Heritage Close, Yeronga adjacent to the former Rhyndarra Military Hospital site; and 2. The Esplanade Park; without offering the opportunity for other names being considered. I, and others, wish to duly recognise and respect the Traditional Owners of this area, who have been here for more than 50,000 years, not a couple of hundreds of years.

Your petitioners therefore request that at least two alternative names may be considered that rightfully reflects on the Traditional Owners of this area, say:- 1. Uncle Desmond Sandy Park, and 2. Yugarapul Chepara Parkland
