Lathlain Park railway station was a railway station on the Transperth network. It was located on the Armadale line, 6.5 kilometres from Perth station serving the suburb of Victoria Park.

History[edit]

Lathlain station opened in 1959 to serve the newly built Lathlain Park, to which the Perth Football Club had moved. It closed on 3 February 2003, eventually being replaced by the new Victoria Park station on 2 August 2008 as part of the New MetroRail project.[1][2][3][4]

The station was demolished with the illuminated station signs donated to the Perth Football Club.
