FREMANTLE ESPLANADE GRASS A MESS AGAIN
What an absolute shame to see the state of the Fremantle Esplanade grass after the City spent so much money on it last year.
No one is to blame as the surface has some kind of disease that can only be treated by taking many metres off the top soil and that would be an enormously expensive job.
But I wonder if the Esplanade Masterplan actually addresses this very important issue. It is no good to remove the Carriage cafe and build another hospitality venue when the reserve looks awful. It is not practical or financially viable to just keep putting new grass on it that dies within months because of the disease.
