Abstract Industrial parks have aroused high expectations among academics and practitioners. Using the product cycle concept, it is argued that the emphasis should now move from development to ongoing management to maintain park performance. This is illustrated by reference to a mature and successful Australian park: detailed evaluation of location, access, amenity, and zoning suggests changes to physical planning and management potentially beneficial to occupants. Given the downturn in Western manufacturing and the concentration of industrial activity in parks, park performance is now significant. Improvements at the micro‐level might assist industrial restructuring and recovery. Les lotissements industriels ont provoquk de grands espoirs parmi thkoreticiens et gens de mktier. En utilisant le concept du cycle des produits, cet article affirme que, apr le dkveloppement mike, c'est la continuit6 de la gestion qui doit maintenant susciter les efforts si on veut maintenir les rksultats obtenus dans ces surfaces. L'exemple d'un lotissement industriel australien bien établi et prospkre vaservir A illustrer cette affirmation: l'evaluation detaillke du site, des points d'accks, de l'agrkment, de la repartition en zones suggkre des changements dans la planification physique et la gestion qui peuvent offrir des améliorations aux occupants. Etant donne le declin de l'industrie occidentale et la concentration de I'activite industrielle dans des lotissements Specialises, I'efficacitt de ces surfaces est importante. Des ameliorations de detail pourraient contribuer A la restructuration et A la relkve industrielles. Copyright
