Bad luck for Fremantle Circus WA in their new home at Princess May Park. The big top tent blew up in the first storm of the winter season on Wednesday night and now they are doing urgent repairs on it.

FREO’S WARM WINTER WORLD

Posted in children, city of fremantle, family, Uncategorized, winter by freoview on June 20, 2017

 

The Fremantle WINTERWORLD skate season is on again at the Esplanade from this Saturday June 24 to July 16, so make sure to take the kids there for a day of fun and sore bottoms.

It is in the Italian Club carpark just metres away from the Esplanade Youth Plaza, so if the weather remains as sunny as it it the two combined make a perfect day out for families.

There will be food stalls, a bar, mulled wine, so a great celebration of winter and the Freo lifestyle.

SPARE PARTS THEATRE RENOVATIONS

Spare Parts

 

WA Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman has announced a $ 400,000 upgrade of the Fremantle Spare Parts Puppet Theatre at Pioneer Park.

The upgrade is only exterior with a so-called exo-skeleton being wrapped around the back of the building to strengthen it, but I hear that there might be more extensive plans, which I can not disclose yet.

Spare Parts will temporarily move to the Dolphin Theatre at the University of Western Australia in July and August.

Shaun Tan’s The Arrival will be the first performance at the Dolphin Theatre from July 1-15.

NEW SLIDE AT ESPLANADE PLAYGROUND

New slide

A new slide has been added to the Fremantle Esplanade children’s playground.

Kids can access the slide from the climbing net and it looks like a lot of fun.

WA DAY 1

 

Children outnumbered adults in Fremantle today as large family groups, babies and prams came to celebrate WA DAY on the Esplanade and all around town.

Some cafes were closed and others charged a public holiday surcharge, but who cares, the sun is shining, the sky is blue and it’s pretty warm for a winter’s day.

CIRCUS WA NEW FREO TENT HOME

Posted in children, circus wa, fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on June 3, 2017

 

 

The preparations for the relocation of the circus school CIRCUS WA from the Artsource building at Phillimore Street to their temporary new home at Princess May Park next to DADAA at the former Boys School are well underway.

A spring floor has been built and this morning the big top was put up, so it won’t be long until the kids can train their circus acts in a real circus tent.

Stage 1 of the Fremantle Cantonment Hill project is now underway and a start has been made on the new children’s playground, retaining walls, earth stabilisation and steps from Canning Highway to the top of the hill.

The steps are just to the east of the former Naval Stores where ENKEL will move into in a few months and disabled access will be built to the left of the steps.

One has stunning views over the port, river and Fremantle from the top of the hill and Fremantle Sea rescue has taken over the former Signal Station.

There is access from Burt Street (opposite Officeworks) to walk or drive up Cantonment Hill during the day, or walk up and do a bit of exercise.

THE MANKIND PROJECT

Posted in family, fathers, fremantle, health, Uncategorized by freoview on April 26, 2017

Men are not as tough and macho as society would like us to believe. There are many men who suffer in silence and isolation from depression and other mental health problems  because they are too ashamed to admit to having problems.

The ManKind Project hopes to help address men’s issues, so check out the details on the poster below.

They meet on Thursday May 4 at 7 pm at A Place To Be, 4A preston Point Road, East Fremantle.

It’s another perfect autumn day in beautiful Fremantle so ideal to enjoy the school holidays.

There are lots of families and young people wandering around Freo and many are sampling the seafood delights in the Fishing Boat Harbour.
