The City of Fremantle has partnered with the Fremantle Dockers to create a very comfy new fan experience at AFLW games at Fremantle Oval this season.

The Visit Fremantle Chillout Deck will give Freo supporters the chance to lay back on artificial lawn and lounge furniture while enjoying the best seat in the house on the raised and shaded deck at the southern end of the oval. 

Food and beverages will be available for purchase on the deck, with exclusive giveaways on offer for some lucky Freo fans.

There will also be free icy poles for the kids, face painting, giant Jenga and other lawn games on offer.

Entry to all AFLW games at Fremantle Oval this season is free, but access to the deck is first-come first-in and capacity is limited, so fans are advised to arrive early to secure their spot.

The female Dockers had a great season last year, with six wins from seven games, so we can expect a great game this Sunday.

The Visit Fremantle Chillout Deck kicks off this Sunday, when Fremantle take on Geelong in their first game of the 2020 NAB AFL Women’s competition. Gates open at 1.10pm.

The car park inside Fremantle Oval, car park 16 on Parry Street and the Cappuccino Strip car park on South Terrace will be closed to the general public.

Fremantle’s other AFLW matches at Fremantle Oval this season are against Collingwood on 22 February, Brisbane on 8 March and Melbourne on 22 March.

I’ll see you all there!

I hope the heatwave won’t discourage parents to take their children to the Carols by Candlelight at Fremantle Oval this Sunday. It should be a very lovely and pleasantly warm evening, so no need to stay at home, and there will be food and drinks available as well.

Gates open at 5pm but the carols only start at 6.30 and will go till 8pm, so it won’t be a too late night for the young ones.

I’ll see you all there!

THE OLD AND NEW OF FREMANTLE

 

Old and New

 

I got this interesting perspective from Fremantle Oval that shows part of the Kings Square redevelopment and the Townhall.

The crane is for the new Civic Centre building that is progressing well.

FREMANTLE OVAL NEEDS COAT OF PAINT

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle oval, heritage, local government, sport, Uncategorized by freoview on July 30, 2019

 

 

I sincerely hope that the City of Fremantle will give Fremantle Oval a coat of paint soon and will not wait another 5-10 years until they might start the big redevelopment project for the precinct.

It is such an eyesore to look at the back of the pavilion with big patches of flaking paint and that opposite Fremantle’s most popular tourist destination the Fremantle Markets.

The Synagogue tavern development next door to the oval is well under way, so the City should be considerate to its neigbours and paint the back of the historic grand stand.

CONFUSING CONFIDENTIALITY AT FREMANTLE COUNCIL

 

Although I have been closely following what goes on at Fremantle Council for over ten years I am still not sure why certain agenda items are considered to be confidential, and the public is excluded from attending the deliberations about them, while other similar topics remain open to the public and are not considered confidential.

On Wednesday the license agreement with the South Fremantle Football Club is a confidential item, but the license agreement for the public golf course is not.

Commercial confidentiality can hardly be the reason as there are no other clubs queuing up to lease Fremantle Oval, especially since the East Fremantle Football Club has decided to stay at East Fremantle Oval and not share Fremantle Oval with the South Fremantle footy club.

So what are the reasons for making an agenda item confidential in Fremantle?

Also confidential at the Ordinary Council meeting this coming Wednesday is a report about the Summer Event Series at Port Beach and another confidential report about a Port Beach Music/Lifestyle event. But the Winter Festival on the Esplanade was not a confidential item. Why?

Plus there is also the confidential report about the performance of the Chief Executive Officer.

We welcome anyone that is generous enough to volunteer their time for a couple of hours or a day here and there.

Working With Children Card is essential and we can assist you in obtaining that.

FREMANTLE OVAL THE NEXT BIG PROJECT

 

 

Subiaco Oval development plans

 

After the Kings Square Redevelopment Project the next big project in Fremantle will be the Fremantle Oval one, and if it is done right we’ll have an amazing new precinct in the inner city that will connect Wray Avenue with the Cappuccino Strip.

After all the planned and in progress commercial development the heart of the city will need more medium-density residential development and the Freo Oval project is perfect for that.

Height needs to be addressed though with utmost sensitivity because of the proximity to the World Heritage listed Fremantle Prison. We can’t just apply the rule that Fremantle Hospital is high, and also the residential building across it at Arundel Court, so we can go up all the way to the height of the hospital.

The Claremont Oval development should be a huge warning for Fremantle. It is awful!

I reserve my opinion about the planned development of Subiaco Oval, but check it out for yourself on the Landcorp website, see the artist’s impression above.

FREE PARKING FOR FEMALE FREMANTLE DOCKERS GAMES?

Posted in afl, city of fremantle, fremantle dockers, local government, parking, Uncategorized by freoview on February 19, 2019

 

There are a lot of people around who have easy, but often very unrealistic, solutions for just about everything.

A letter in today’s West Australian by R.Correla of Beaconsfield fits in that category.

Correla writes that the City of Fremantle should provide free parking one hour before and three hours after the Fremantle Dockers women’s team games at Fremantle Oval.

But those games are on weekends when Fremantle is at its busiest and where the lack of inner city parking is often complained about. Parking fees are also a substantial source of income for the City and council rates would need to be increased if more free parking were to be provided.

It is also quite insulting from R.Correla to say Fremantle needs more smart people on council, and not a minority who are only about themselves. Fremantle Council is far from perfect, but the elected members do their best to make the right decisions for our community.

May I suggest to R.Correla to actually attend and observe council meetings. It’s always good to be informed first hand, rather than making ignorant assumptions and accusations.

Dockers women game

 

The first game of the season for the female Fremantle Dockers team last week was a huge success and a big win for our ladies, so head out to Fremantle Oval this Sunday to support them when they play Collingwood.

Entry is free and the game starts just after 3pm, so let’s create a big crowd of supporters!
