Greening Fremantle

Consultation has concluded

Tree sapling

Green spaces and trees provide a range of economic, social and environmental benefits. The Fremantle 2029 visioning process identified a clear long-term vision for Fremantle to be a sustainable, liveable and vibrant place over the coming decades. In particular, green spaces were identified by the community as valuable assets.

Greening Fremantle: Strategy 2020 provides a framework to deliver key projects over the next five years to implement a greener city. It is the culmination of work and input from the local community, Green Plan 2020 Working Group and City of Fremantle.

Key targets and initiatives include:

  • Every worker and resident to be within walking distance to public open space.
  • Progressively increase tree canopy across the city to achieve up to 20 percent.
  • Design adaptable open space that allows for future flexibility as the community and open space function and needs change over time.
  • Develop links that increase the amount of vegetation and increase habitat and movement between green spaces for native fauna.

A range of projects will be delivered to meet these targets, including new green spaces, improving green links for biodiversity, and an urban forest plan to reduce urban heat island effect.

    The construction budget for Hilton Pocket Park was approved by Fremantle Council on 28 June 2017 and adopted into the 2017/18 budget.

    The detailed design can now be prepared and will balance site access with safety. Construction will commence later in the year, in the meantime we are working to source reclaimed materials for the space.

    A new green space has been completed in the O'Connor Industrial Area, near the corner of Forsyth Street and Hines Road.

    A key target of the Greening Fremantle Strategy 2020 is to provide usable open space within walking distance for every resident and worker in the City of Fremantle.

    This upgrade includes some recycled seating and landscaping, and will provide a space for nearby workers and residents to stop and relax, or enjoy a break.
