Residents have a say in the naming of the impending Endeavour Hills Community Precinct.

The shortlist of names for the $3.36 million activity square are MESH (an acronym of Mingle Explore Skate Hub), Hillscape Park, Binbeal Park and Gradient 22.

Hillscape Park is a reference to the suburb’s hilly topography, Binbeal Park is inspired by the name of Bunjil the Eagle’s son and Gradient 22 lends its name from the future skate park’s steep angles.

The stores behind the names are further detailed on Casey Council’s website Casey Conversations.

Stage 2 of the precinct works are scheduled to finish in early 2020.

The project includes an upgraded regional skate park, playground, terraced landscaping, events lawn and gymnastics and parkour equipment.

The 865 square-metre skate park with a street course and skate bowls is designed for beginners as well as experienced skaters and scooter riders.

City of Casey mayor Amanda Stapledon said a branding and design consultant had come up with four potential names.

“Each of (them) is unique, has its own story and reflects different aspects of Endeavour Hills and this project,” Cr Stapledon said.

“Once complete, this precinct will be become a hub for the Endeavour Hills community to meet, socialise, skate and play, so it’s fitting that we get their input on what they’d like to see it named once it’s complete.”

The project is equally funded by City of Casey and the State Government.

Votes are open on the Casey Conversations website until Sunday 23 June.
