(26/10/2018) City welcomes reopening of Kings Square car park
Following a multi-million dollar upgrade over the past seven months, the privately-owned Kings Square car park (formerly known as Queensgate) will partially re-open on Wednesday 31 October.
There will initially be around 470 bays available, with more bays coming on line as work is completed.
Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said the City of Fremantle welcomed the reopening of the car park in time for the busy Christmas trading period.
“The broader Kings Square Renewal project is progressing well and having the car park back in operation is another major milestone,” Mayor Pettitt said.
“We’re pleased Sirona and their builder Probuild have honoured a commitment made earlier this year to have the car park back up and running by November.
“The lead up to Christmas is a critical time for local traders in Fremantle who have told us having these bays available is very important. This will give them a boost, especially those businesses in and around Kings Square.”
The upgrades include structural works, protective epoxy coatings to decks, new paint and line markings, new lighting and services throughout.
The new lift and stairwell is expected to be completed in a few more months with the original lift and stairwell available until then.
Parking costs have been set at $3 per hour with a $9.00 early bird all day parking rate available.
As an opening special, car park owner Sirona Capital have announced there will be free parking between 6am to 7pm up to an including Sunday 4 November.

About Kings Square Fremantle renewal
It’s by far the biggest project ever undertaken by a Fremantle Council and is one of the biggest developments in Fremantle’s history.
The coordinated renewal of the Fremantle city centre includes the redevelopment of the Queensgate Centre, Queensgate car park and former Myer building owned by Sirona Capital.
It will also deliver new civic/community buildings including City of Fremantle administration offices and library, enhanced public spaces, commercial and retail offerings.
This once-in-a-generation project will create a civic, retail, commercial and community hub that is a vibrant, active and safe place which reflects Kings Square’s unique position in the heart of Fremantle.
The project will create more than 2100 new local jobs for Fremantle once operational, injecting $358m into the local economy.
