GREAT FREMANTLE MURAL ART

Posted in art, city of fremantle, retail, shopping, Uncategorized by freoview on November 10, 2017

 

 

I walked past the lovely huge mural artwork on the East West Design building at Marime Terrace in Fremantle yesterday late afternoon, and could not help myself. I had to take some more photos.

The mural is the entire length of both sides of the building at South terrace and Marine Terrace and has become a tourist destination. It is the biggest artwork in Fremantle.

A wander through the huge East West Design warehouse will leave you with plenty of ideas for presents or to beautify your home, so have a browse.

NEW SPORTS HUB AT SOUTH BEACH

The construction of the new sports hub at South Beach is underway and will hopefully be ready for summer.

The mixed-use court for basketball, futsall and volleyball is just south of the toilets and hugging the dunes.

Fremantle Council went through an extensive process to decide on the right location for the hub, as the initial plan was to put it in the northern carpark or on Wilson Park, but consideration for local residents, who were worried noise from the hardcourt might impact on their peace and quiet, dictated the court should be as far away from residential development as possible.

LOVELY RIVERSIDE DRIVE

Posted in city of fremantle, east fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on October 5, 2017

 

Plympton Steps

 

It is just out of Fremantle, but I love walking and driving along Riverside Drive in East Fremantle.

It is great to see all the yachts, the pelicans, mums with prams, joggers, families, dog walkers as one goes along.

The Leeuwin Barracks development project will be a huge thing for the Town of East Fremantle, so I am looking forward to that starting next year some time.

I always end up on the top near Petra Street where one can look along the Swan River from above the yacht club and see the Perth highrise buildings in the distance.

On the way back there are great views to Fremantle Port.

The Plympton Steps have been completed and with the freshly-painted Tradeswind Hotel above it it looks very attractive.

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.

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.

NATURE PLAYGROUND FOR KINGS SQUARE

Posted in children, city of fremantle, development by freoview on February 12, 2017

The City of Fremantle is planning a nationwide competition for the design of a nature playground at Kings Square as part of the Kings Square Project development.

The area allocated would be to the east of the St John’s church, on land owned by the church, and close to the new cafe that will be part of the new Civic Centre and Library at Kings Square.

It is estimated the design and construction of the playground will cost $ 500,000.00.

A jury which would have members of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, CoF  Design Advisory Committee and Fremantle City officers would decide on the winning submission for the project.

HOLIDAY IN NORTH FREMANTLE

Posted in community, fremantle, holiday, nature, western australia by freoview on September 25, 2016

You don’t have to go far in Fremantle to feel you are on holiday, as I again discovered at the North Fremantle foreshore this morning.

It is the kind of morning normal people refer to as bloody cold, and only those eternally optimistic glass is half full people call it invigorating, so I decided a change in routine would be good, after the routinely morning coffee and newspaper in a West End cafe, and had a stroll along the  north bank of the Swan river.

There were quite a few people out and about walking dogs and the only negative up that way is the constant noise of cars on the bridges.

Here some impressions. Enjoy the long weekend!
