Invitation: Community Planting Event

Come and volunteer with us on Saturday the 22rd June at our community planting event. The South Beach Community Group has partnered with the City of Fremantle to undertake planting activities next to the old South Beach Train station at the top end of South Beach Promenade to improve park amenity and biodiversity values.

The community planting event will be held on Saturday 22rd June from 8 – 11 am and all members of the community are invited. This event is supported by the City of Fremantle; limited gloves and trowels will be available on the day so please bring your own if you have them and your closed in shoes and water bottles.

Plant selection has been based on using local native species that are best adapted to local conditions, biodiversity values and with a resilience to low watering regime.

This community planting event is a follow on from our hugely successful planting event last year; we are also grateful to the City of Cockburn for this year contributing some additional plants to compliment those supplied by the City of Fremantle which will be used in CoC bordering areas around the pond.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Have your say on proposed bike paths

The City of Cockburn is seeking public input about creating two bike and walk paths:

  1. Rockingham Road Protected Bikeway:

The aim is to build an off-road bikeway along Rockingham Road from Hampton Road/Cockburn Road to Spearwood Avenue.

It would most likely be made of red or black asphalt with green markings at conflict points.

The exact design is complex and yet to be determined. We will look at issues like road crossing points and having separated paths protected from traffic. Ideally, it would be suitable for youngsters to seniors, or families.

BP Bikeway:

The aim is to build a bikeway from Carrington Street to Blackwood Avenue and Phoenix Road to Angus Ave/Stock Road, along the BP oil pipeline reserve.

Check the City’s website for more details and add your feedback.
