At 14.7 hectares, Gloucester Park is the single biggest landholding in the Riverside project area. Owned by the Western Australian Trotting Association (WATA), Gloucester Park has been the home of harness racing in Perth for over 70 years and is listed on the State Register of Heritage Places.
Gloucester Park presents an opportunity to house a substantial new urban community integrated with Claisebrook Village to the north.
The Master Plan allows for 3-6 storey development to the north of the Wittenoom Street view corridor and up to 20 storeys to the south. The site’s size provides the opportunity for the trotting facilities to be expanded and enhanced with complementary sporting, recreational, residential and commercial uses.
As with all private landowners, the stages and timing of Gloucester Park’s development is up to WATA's discretion and MRA will work with WATA to ensure development potential is maximised.
