Gloucester Park Harness Racing
3 Nelson Cres, East Perth WA 6004
"Gloucester Park, the home of harness racing in Western Australia, is located on the banks of the Swan River in the exclusive precinct of East Perth. The course was built in 1929 and completed at a cost of 200,000 pounds; an exceptional feat considering the completion was achieved during the Great Depression.
The course was officially opened by Perth's Lord Mayor J T Franklin on 15th March 1930. The feature events at that night's meeting were named after James Brennan and J P Stratton, who are fondly regarded as the Fathers of harness racing in Western Australia. Gloucester Park's close proximity to the city's Central Business District makes it an ideal venue, reachable by any mode of transport. Gloucester Park is perfectly positioned as one of Western Australia's prime Friday night entertainment venues.
Gloucester Park is a unique and versatile venue in Perth, showcasing exciting harness racing every Friday night. The superbly appointed facilities include 3 restaurants operating during race nights and 9 function rooms available for private hire on any day or night of the week."
