On May 9 between 3pm and 7pm, locals are invited to Light Up Lathlain, an event to reignite community spirit following months of work to upgrade Lathlain Place.
It is the first of the Lathlain Precinct Redevelopment Project�s eight zones to be completed.
Features of the new Lathlain Place include pedestrian priority one-way traffic, new lighting, multi-functional outdoor furniture, natural environmental elements and the funkiest bus shelter in Perth.
Lathlain Place and Rayment Park will come alive with free activities, games, crafts and entertainment, food vans, face painting, giant games, music, craft, Scitech exhibits and displays by local community groups.
Town of Victoria Park Mayor Trevor Vaughan said the completion of Lathlain Place was a milestone and had completely transformed it into an inviting and attractive place to stop and enjoy a quiet moment.
Parking is available in the Lathlain Park carpark on Roberts Road, entrance off McCartney Crescent. Public transport is close by, with bus route 39 and Victoria Park Train Station a short walk from the event.
