Frank Gibson park in Fremantle is a little gem located on Forrest Street and Wilkinson Street, hidden behind the netball courts. There’s a great range of play equipment for children to play on, providing them with adventure and a chance to explore. It’s perfect for play dates and a great spot to keep the children busy if you need to exercise your dog on the adjoining park (please be aware that if you are taking your dog, the playground is a dog-free zone). There’s an undercover seating area with BBQ facilities, making it a great spot to bunker down for lunch or even host a party.

There’s a great tunnel slide that gets the kids climbing up the rock face before sliding down to do it again. The climbing frame is great for them to practice their ninja skills, and the spider web is irresistible for any little monkey. Don’t forget a bucket and spade for them to keep busy in the sand.

The nature play area has some shade and offers the kids an opportunity to use their balance, problem solving skills and creative thinking. Finished off with three swings, there’s enough to keep them entertained whilst you enjoy your coffee.

The playground was renewed in 2020, keeping some of its original features. The students at East Fremantle Primary School had a big say in what was included in the design of the new play space and we think it looks fantastic – we hope you do too!
