Opportunity for a Pocket Park - White Gum Valley

Consultation has concluded

As part of Greening Fremantle: Strategy 2020, the City is working to provide usable open space within walking distance for every resident and worker in the City of Fremantle.

The eastern area of White Gum Valley (north of South St / west of Carrington St) does not currently meet this target. A detailed investigation has identified an opportunity to improve the corner of Biddles Lane and Minilya Av (drainage sump and the adjoining verge) for local residents.

Further information on the site can be found in the FAQs.


Design finalised

Following community feedback several changes were made to the draft concept, you can view or download the final concept here or see the interactive version below. Read the full news update near the bottom of this page for further information.


Based on the positive response from surrounding residents the White Gum Valley pocket park on the corner of Minilya Av and Biddles Lane will proceed.

A key theme from responses was that the pocket park would provide a great opportunity to support community culture and be a meeting point, particularly as it is near other services. Responses indicate it would be used most by children under 5 (and their families) and older adults without children. Some alterations are being made based on resident feedback and site constraints and once the detailed design is ready an update will be given to respondents.



Due to the site constraints a draft concept has been developed to determine what could be included in the space.

View the draft concept and tell us your thoughts. Would this space be used by you and your family? If so, how would you guide the design?

Attend the drop-in session on-site 10 March 2018 (2.00pm-3.30pm) or send us your thoughts online by 4.00pm 13 March 2018. You can also download a copy of the draft here.
