Higgins Park and Playfield Reserve updates

Higgins Park is a mixed-use recreation space for football and cricket, along with a playground, barbecues and clubrooms. A masterplan has been developed to guide the short- and long-term revitalisation of this popular community space.  

The final masterplan was approved at the December 2020 Ordinary Council Meeting and the Town is now working towards implementation. The masterplan is a 10 to 15-year roadmap which sets out the future plans for the area and will be undertaken in stages to get to the future state of Higgins Park and Playfield Reserve. Currently, we are progressing the lighting upgrade component.

Current phase: Lighting upgrade

The Town is currently advancing the lighting upgrade component of the masterplan to improve lighting/visibility to formal and informal recreation areas. This upgrade will assist the Town in its ongoing commitment to a safe and dynamic night-time environment for the community, and further benefit those who use the park, including clubs such as Victoria Park Raiders Junior Football Club, South Perth Junior Cricket Club, and Carlisle Windsor Cricket Club, who may use the park in the evening for training and games. 

Funds of $1,040,000 have been allocated for the lighting upgrade in the Town’s 2022-23 Annual Budget
