Community Activity Zone

Zone 2 will be area for passive recreation. As an urban park, it will be a place to understand and relate to nature, whilst also being a place to recreate and socialise.  It will be a multi-use destination for the community with a range of things to do. The design of Zone 2 presents a real opportunity to enrich Lathlain Park.

Community consultation - former bowling club site and Tom Wright Park

February 9, 2017

The Town of Victoria Park has developed a draft concept plan for the enhancement of Tom Wright Park and the former Lathlain/Carlisle bowling club on Roberts Road, Carlisle. Prior to progressing this concept further, you are invited to participate in a survey to provide comment. The plan and survey are available via the Town’s Your Thoughts website

How did we develop this concept plan?
The Town held a number of community workshops and some online engagement in July – September 2016 which was open to all interested residents. At these workshops participants were asked to help design both the community activity zone and as the need became more apparent, the Tom Wright Park and the former Lathlain/Carlisle bowling club site. The plans being currently advertised are a first draft based on feedback and ideas received as part of this consultation.

How does this relate to the work occurring in the Lathlain Precinct?
Whilst not formally being part of the Lathlain Precinct Redevelopment Project, the Town and workshop participants felt it was important to include the Tom Wright Park and the former Lathlain/Carlisle bowling club site in the redevelopment project conversation due to its close location to Lathlain Precinct and the opportunity it presented to look at the open space in the area as a whole. In addition, some of the elements on the concept plan, such as the dog park and tennis courts, were originally located near Lathlain Place. They have now been rehomed onto the former bowling club site.


All survey responses on the proposed concept plan are to be submitted by 5pm Monday 13 March 2017.

Your comments will be considered by the project team before further refining the concept plan and being presented to the community reference group and Council for consideration.

Should you have any queries or require further information please contact Jess Gannaway, Senior Strategic Planner on 9311 8197 or



Town still receiving feedback on plan

December 22, 2016

The Town is still receiving feedback on the concept design for Zone 2 and will continue to receive and consider such feedback.

The Town has been meeting with experts in dog behaviour and attending training courses to better understand the need for a dog park.

The Town will be targeting Carlisle residents in relation to the former Bowling Club Site and Tom Wright Park concept to gauge their level of satisfaction with the plan. It's expected this consultation will occur in February 2017. Keep an eye out for signs on site and direct mail outs, as well as the Town's Facebook and Twitter for information on how to participate.
