Lathlain – Tom Wright Reserve

REALMstudios were commissioned by the Town of Victoria Park to develop concepts and a schematic design for this new community park located on the former Carlisle Bowls Club & Tom Wright Reserve sites as part of the Lathlain Precinct Project.

The project was steered by close community involvement via a Community Reference Group that involved a Participatory Budgeting  process to determine not only wants & needs but prioritisation of available funds.

Working closely with TPG’s consultation team REALMstudios developed a design response that the community feel they own and result we are all happy with.

The design is a response to community values and desires for:

  • Historic references – celebrating the former bowling club use;
  • Ecological functionality – a native and botanically rich parkland;
  • Community access and functionality; BBQ facilities, Shelters, Multi-use courts, Toilets and Play area;
  • Canopy and shade – areas of respite and nurture;
  • Equity in provision of amenities (on and beyond the site);
  • A major Universal access and ‘nature’ play ground;
  • Safety and security – lighting and good sight lines.

The new green space provides ecological services – behaving as a catalyst for urban consolidation and growth, socially and economically.
