Fremantle Council this week approved plans to upgrade public spaces in Kings Square.
The key components of the $8 million upgrades include:
The plan includes multiple zones including a kids’ play space, quiet shaded areas for people to relax in and flexible spaces for events and other community uses. The end result will be a safe and inviting multi-purpose place for people of all ages, abilities and interests.
The endorsement of the plan follows an extensive public consultation phase where more than 350 individuals, organisations and community groups provided feedback in workshops and via formal comments and submissions. This included around 160 school-aged kids who took part in one of five design workshops for the new play space.
The City of Fremantle will now move into the detailed design phase which will include budgeting and staging options as well as further traffic modelling, accessibility and safety audits, consultation with the Whadjuk working party and selection of colour palettes and materials.
