At this week’s council meeting, Freo's mayor Brad Pettitt gifted former Fremantle Deputy Mayor Jean Hobson a sign from the Kings Square playground named after her back in 1992.
Jean was a driving force behind the playground, convincing fellow councillors in the early 1990s of the need for a playground in Kings Square.
The playground will soon be dismantled to make way for the new City of Fremantle civic, administration and library building. Don't worry, a modern new playground will take its place. Check out the plans here
On behalf of the thousands of kids who have enjoyed the Jean Hobson playground over the past 28 years a big thanks Jean!
