WORRIED ABOUT ESPLANADE TREE

Reader Kel Smith is all up in arms that I photographed the wrong tree on the Esplanade and that I called him a worrier, so here the tree he is concerned about.

Relax, Kel! I did not go out in the storm and rain on Friday to deliberately shoot the wrong tree or ridicule you, I simply got it wrong, because unlike everyone else in Fremantle I am not perfect!

I too am a Freo worrier, and so are all those who care for our city, so no offence meant there either.

Now let me go back contemplating mountains and mole hills. ; >)

ESPLANADE A COMMUNITY SPACE FOR CONTEMPLATION

In a world that is in a mad rush to do everything fast, the quiet enjoyment of an inner city park is invaluable, as this photo taken this morning at the Fremantle Esplanade shows.

What the area does not need is more entertainment and another cafe. It is a great spot for families to meet for picnic, kick the footy, or just sit back and read a book.

When we engage in constant internet communication we need spaces for contemplation and relaxation where we are not bombarded with noise.

MANY METRES OF NEW GRASS AT FREO ESPLANADE PARK

Hundreds of metres of new grass are being laid at the Fremantle Esplanade Park  and making the surface look great again just in time for summer.

There is no doubt for me that the Esplanade needs to be better managed by the City of Fremantle and that events there have to be limited as the surface simply can’t cope with thousands of feet trampling on it, heavy vehicles driving on it and stages being built on many weekends in summer.

Fremantle City needs to be more clever and rotate events around the city. Smaller events could go to Pioneer Park, Princess May Park, Kings Square and South Beach, and larger ones could be accommodated at Fremantle Park. There might also be scope for a few more daytime events at the Fremantle Art Centre on the southern big lawn.

The Esplanade needs to be treated with more consideration as it is not acceptable that it looks a total mess for many months a year. Common sense needs to prevail here and it is Council’s responsibility to implement and manage that!
