Community Activity Zone FAQ

Why this zone?
In 2011, the Town of Victoria Park Council endorsed the Lathlain Park Master Plan (LPMP) which was going to guide the redevelopment of Lathlain Park into a more vibrant, and community friendly space.
The West Coast Eagles then came on board for their new training, administration and community centre, which modified the original plans, and we now call it the Lathlain Precinct Redevelopment Project.
The this zone encompasses much of the original intention for recreation and leisure space for the community.
What will this zone deliver to the community?
This zone design intention was for an area of public passive recreation. The scope for its development was informed by community based upon your feedback during the engagement process for the Management Plan. The actual concept plan of this zone was guided by a series of community workshops. Some of the elements of the zone that were directed by the community included:
location and number of multiuse courts
Goddard Street and McCartney Crescent parking.
The Concept Plan for the Community Activity Zone 2/2X was approved by Council at the August 2017 Ordinary Council Meeting which became the direction for the delivery of the project.
