Park(ing) Day Freo 2014

PARK(ing) Day is an annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into "PARK(ing)" spaces: temporary public places. The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat ... at least until the meter runs out! From pop up green space, to a silent disco, to an outdoor reading space and beyond, Fremantle will support a day of outdoor activity, community connectedness and new urban vision. A walking map will be available from "PARK" installations all day and activities will run from 10.00 am until 5.00 pm. Presented by the City of Fremantle & Ecoscape

Spring has Sprung - Wildflower Display

From early September until late November, Fremantle Markets will be blossoming with Wildflowers! Western Australia is home to some of the most spectacular wildflowers in the world and in collaboration with Botanica Naturalis, Fremantle Markets will bring a piece of this beauty within the market for all to enjoy. Spring has Sprung opens on the weekend of Friday, 5 September, and this spectacular falling garden display will continue into the months of September, October and November. At the heart of the exhibition is the sheer beauty and simplicity of the everlasting flower, which is unique to Western Australia. A flower that attracts thousands of tourists to our country each year, the everlasting is an iconic symbol of our native floral beauty. Like one giant vase turned upside down, Fremantle Markets' Spring has Sprung captures this unique Australian flower as a stunning installation that aims to awe and inspire.
