Gloucester Park

Gloucester Park is a harness racing venue located on the banks of the Swan River in Perth, adjacent to the WACA Ground. The course was built in 1929 and officially opened by Perth’s Lord Mayor J T Franklin on 15th March 1930. Gloucester Park hosts harness racing under its lights every Friday night. The venue features various facilities and ample grandstand seating, with a grassed area between it at the trotting track.

Between 1977 and 1979 Gloucester Park was used as a venue for World Series Cricket matches. The venue holds social and historical qualities and was interim listed in the State Register of Heritage Places in 2003. In the early 1980s, East Perth Redevelopment Authority (EPRA) coordinated the East Perth Redevelopment Project in which parts of Gloucester Park went through modifications.

Gloucester Park Harness Racing (GPHR) unveiled plans for the revitalisation of Gloucester Park in 2022, featuring a new grandstand incorporating a new members area. The redevelopment proposal is set to ensure the long-term future of harness racing at the iconic track.
