Fremantle Stuff > Fremantle Park
Fremantle Park was established in 1879 for the use of the people of Fremantle.
Tennis and Bowls clubs are in the Parry/Ellen St corner, while most of the rest of what remains of the original grant is a playing field, also used occasionally for events like 'music festivals'. Those clubs, together with the Workers Club, will make use of the Fremantle Park Sport and Community Centre from 2017.
Fremantle Park is now bordered by Ellen, Parry and Ord Streets, tho the reserve originally extended all the way up to East Street, and included what are now the Arts Centre and John Curtin school. Department of Defence requisitioned some of it, and then so did the Education Department. The Council's Leisure Centre (swimming pools) occupies a section of it.
