Important announcement: The City of Fremantle is acting on the best advice from health authorities and doing its part to slow the spread of COVID-19 to protect vulnerable people in our community.

As a precautionary measure, we have cancelled all events, activities and programs until further notice. 

All updates will be shared through our website and social media channels. For any enquiries, please call 1300 MY FREO (1300 693 736).

The City of Fremantle works in collaboration with Perth Parkour, the WA branch of the Australian Parkour Association.

Perth Parkour have been instrumental in the establishment of Australia's first purpose built outdoor parkour facility at the Fremantle Esplanade Youth Plaza.

Parkour is a physical discipline in which one trains to become efficient in their movement In order to overcome obstacles (both physical and mental). This can involve running, jumping, climbing, balancing and more.

Often confused with freerunning, parkour is more about efficiency and movement that can assist you in a "reach or escape" emergency situation. Freerunning while involving a lot of similar movement to Parkour, it's more about aesthetics and expression than efficiency.

Throughout the year Perth Parkour have workshops and training sessions open to the public. Go to their website for more information.

Throughout the year the City of Fremantle offers free parkour workshops for young people. Download a disclaimer form and bring it with you.
