WHAT IS THE FUTURE FOR NAVAL STORES EYESORE?

Posted in city of fremantle, heritage, Uncategorized by freoview on November 27, 2017

 

 

It appears that the former Naval Stores building at Cantonment Hill will remain an eyesore for an indefinite time, since the City of Fremantle can’t tell me when the innovative ENKEL incubator will move in.

ENKEL was supposed to move in mid this year, after ground and rock stabilisation needed to be done behind the building, but that has now been completed and the Tuckfield Oval playground was opened a month ago.

ENKEL said on Facebook they hoped they can move in mid next year, but that they did not know, so what is the delay all about Freo City?

The incubator would also have a climbing wall and a cafe, and that takes time for planning and implementation, for which a timeline needs to be announced by CoF.

The Naval Stores is the entrance to Fremantle and looks  awful, so please get a move on City of Fremantle.

It’s going to be a pleasant 33 degrees today, so perfect for the outdoors.

Start your Sunday with breakfast, live music and great fresh produce at the GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKET at Annie Street, Beaconsfield between 8am and midday.

Then from 2-4pm the Bambuseae Rhythm Section will perform at the free courtyard session in the Fremantle Arts Centre.

They are a lively eight-piece fusing blues, funk, afrobeat, jazz and reggae. With their vivacious rhythms, pulsating baselines and raucous horns.

When you are in the area walk up to Cantonment Hill where the Fremantle Sea Rescue has open day of the Signal Station from 1-5 pm.

And after that the Fly by Night Sunday session is on from 5-10pm.

Have a Freo fun day!

FREMANTLE SIGNAL STATION OPEN DAY

The Fremantle Sea Rescue at the Signal Station on historic Cantonment Hill in Fremantle will have an Open Day all weekend on Saturday and Sunday, November 11 and 12 between 1pm and 5 pm.

Great views from there over the port and Swan river and the city so make your way up the hill.

The Signal Station has no wheelchair access and the steps are quite steep, so consider that.

Stage One of the City of Fremantle Cantonment Hill project, the children’s playground, has been completed and will be officially opened by Mayor Brad Pettitt at 4 pm today.

But parents and children could not wait for the opening and were already using the equipment this morning.

The views to Fremantle Port are great, there is a BBQ and a lawn to kick the footy, so go and check it out soon. It’s going to be over 30 degrees tomorrow, so a perfect day for it.

Stage one of the Cantonment Hill Project is nearly finished, with workers doing the final landscaping.

The City of Fremantle will officially open the playground Thursday week, October 12, so make sure to take your children there in ten days.

It looks pretty good and I assume some shade structures and seating will be added to finish it all.

CANTONMENT HILL PLAYGROUND PREVIEW

I got a sneak preview of the new Cantonment Hill playground the City of Fremantle is building, when I followed a young family through an open fence yesterday. The tiny girl was probably the first one who used the slide. A historic moment!

It is a large area and it is starting to look very good, so it will be a fantastic new destination for families.

The views are pretty good as well as one can look down to the port and Swan River and the Rainbow sculpture.

I have been told that there is daily vandalism at the site, but thankfully there were no signs of that on Sunday.

CANTONMENT HILL PLAYGROUND PROGRESS

CH 1

 

The children’s playground at Fremantle’s Cantonment Hill is progressing well and due for completion by the end of August.

Contractors have started to install play equipment today. Just a shame though about the faux limestone walls on such and important and expensive project.

BOWING TO FREMANTLE

A couple of photos I took this morning just east of Fremantle’s Cantonment Hill.

It was nice to have a tiny bit of sunshine and blue sky.

CANTONMENT HILL WORK GOING WELL

Posted in cantonment hill, city of fremantle, community, Uncategorized by freoview on July 19, 2017

 

Cantonment Hill

 

The Friends of Cantonment Hill have created a lovely walking tour map at Burt Street, so that people are aware that one can walk up the hill to get some of the best views of Fremantle, the port, and the Swan river.

Work on the playground area is well underway with retaining walls and steps being built, so the historic area will become a great destination for families in the very near future.

ENKEL should also be taking over the former Navy Stores building, as soon as earth works have been completed.

The former Signal Station is already well used by the Fremantle Volunteer Sea Rescue.
