Oval of­fers new play­ground for kids

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

KIDS have a new play­ground des­ti­na­tion af­ter the of­fi­cial open­ing of the Tuck­field Oval park­land in Fre­man­tle.

The de­vel­op­ment marks the first stage of the trans­for­ma­tion of Fre­man­tle’s his­toric Can­ton­ment Hill precinct.

The new park fea­tures a na­ture-based play­ground, bar­be­cues and pic­nic ar­eas, im­proved foot­paths and light­ing and land­scap­ing with wa­ter wise na­tive plants.

Fre­man­tle Mayor Brad Pet­titt said he was sure the new park, with its spec­tac­u­lar views over the Swan River, would quickly be­come a muchloved at­trac­tion.

“It’s taken a lot of time and ef­fort but it’s fan­tas­tic to see this hid­den cor­ner of Fre­man­tle come to life,” he said.

“I’d es­pe­cially like to thank the Friends of Can­ton­ment Hill com­mu­nity group and the Whad­juk tra­di­tional own­ers for their pas­sion and sup­port for this project.”

A lot of time and ef­fort has gone into putting the new park to­gether, ac­cord­ing to Fre­man­tle Mayor Brad Pet­titt.
