Frank Gibson Playspace Renewal

We're planning a renewal of the playspace at Frank Gibson Park to make sure it meets the needs of all users.

All play equipment except for the climbing net is due for replacement as part of the City's ten year playspace renewal plan. The barbeque, shelter and lighting will also remain.

In August 2019 we asked for your input into the activities you would like to do and the style of replacement play facilities for this space. We heard from over 100 people, and the most highly ranked activities were swinging, climbing, being in a cubby and and nature play. All of the input received was used as the basis for the concept design which includes:

  • A replacement 'traditional' combination play unit, with large sand play underneath
  • A cubby house
  • A slide and rope climb over the rock embankment (including stabilisation)
  • A new 'nature based' play area including climbing logs and boulders
  • Birds nest swing to suit all abilities and ages, plus traditional swings
  • New garden beds with edging to clearly define the boundaries of the playspace
  • Additional trees for more shade
  • Extra benches to offer a range of areas to enjoy the park.

To provide feedback, please complete the survey below, or you can attend the Gibson Park Precinct meeting on Tuesday 29 October, 7:00pm at East Fremantle Primary School (library) to provide feedback in person.

The concept plan can be viewed below or can be downloaded here.
