Construction Almost Complete at East Fremantle Community Park

The East Fremantle Community Park development is close to completion with works to the eastern bank and landscaping across the park now underway.

The new footpath around the oval has now been completed, along with:

  • Sculpting of the existing sump (south eastern corner) to make it smoother and more open.
  • Removing the large sand piles on the north of the oval.
  • Shaping some of the banks to a smoother level.

Upcoming works starting from next week into March include:

  • Installation of reticulation to the eastern bank.
  • Installation of fencing to the new dog park.
  • Installation of amenities to the dog park such as bins and a drink fountain.
  • Footpath repair works around the oval precinct.
  • Installation of over 35 trees on the eastern bank.

In partnership with the Western Australian State Government, East Fremantle Football Club, the East Fremantle Bowls Club, the East Fremantle Croquet Club and with funding from Lotterywest, the Town has developed the facility with community in mind.

The facility supports the delivery of the Town’s Strategic Community Plan 2020-2030, in particular, the strategic priority to protect, promote and enhance the health, wellbeing, and quality of life of our community.

Town of East Fremantle Mayor Jim O’Neill said the park delivers on the Town’s exciting and inclusive vision to provide an integrated community, sport, and leisure precinct for the use of all residents and visitors to the Town.

“Encouraging and supporting healthy lifestyles by providing healthy places and spaces is at the heart of our vision for the park,” Mayor O’Neill said.

“We’ve created a central community hub focused on connecting the community to physical and social activities, whether it be a social catch up with friends for lunch or to watch a game, becoming a member of the leisure club or simply enjoying the grounds walking the dog.

“We hope that East Fremantle residents and community groups will call this facility ‘home’ with a meeting place focus.”

The Town has engaged Belgravia Leisure to manage the facility, with the grand opening earmarked for this autumn. VIP foundation memberships to the health club are already selling fast with installation of the equipment expected soon.
