Fremantle Park

 

It has been a very long time coming but the development of the new Fremantle Park Sports and Community Centre will finally start in just over a week on April 1, and let’s hope that is not an April Fools joke.

The centre will become the new home for the Fremantle Tennis, Fremantle Bowling and Fremantle Workers clubs and will have spaces the general community can also access.

The development is a financial collaboration between the City of Fremantle and the three clubs and will give the clubs much better facilities.

JIM KIDD SPORTS LEAVING FREMANTLE

Posted in art, city of fremantle, retail, shopping, Uncategorized by freoview on August 13, 2018

 

The JIM KIDD sportswear store in Fremantle’s Essex Street is leaving Fremantle and relocating to a huge warehouse near Perth airport.

It is a shame to lose another shop and I question the new location, as there is no way I will drive all the way to the airport to buy my next comfy walking shoes, so they are losing this customer.

Vacant shops are never a good look anywhere, but unfortunately a sign of the time everywhere, so I hope FREO NOW in collaboration with property owners will find a lot of creatives to move into empty retail premises and make them at least look attractive.

It would be nice if the City of Fremantle could allocate money for artists to at least paint windows of vacant shops and make the best out of a bad situation by creating a new art walk attraction in the CBD.
