Kitson Park

Kitson Park, East Fremantle, is on the riverfront below the Plympton (now Tradewinds) Hotel, and contains the 'Plympton Steps'. It is named in honour of WH Kitson, MLC.

My photo from 2006 gives some idea of what Kitson Park looked like with its original steps, and many more palm trees. It now looks radically different since being rebuilt in steel and concrete in 2015, apparently due to 'safety' concerns.
