(28/3/2018) Cappuccino Strip carpark open for Easter

Fremantle’s new city centre carpark will be opening tomorrow afternoon – just in time for the Fremantle International Street Arts Festival.

The 155-bay Cappuccino Strip carpark has been built on the site of the former Stan Reilly Centre on South Terrace.

It has a range of environmentally-friendly features including solar-powered lights and waterwise native gardens, with four electric car charging stations to be installed in coming weeks.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said it’s been a great effort by the City’s infrastructure engineering team to get the carpark ready in time for Easter.

“Easter is one of the busiest times of the year in Freo, with the Fremantle International Street Arts Festival attracting more than 150,000 people,” Mayor Pettitt said.

“While I’d encourage people to use public transport to get to the festival, the additional 155 bays at the new Cappuccino Strip carpark will certainly be very handy.

“The opening of the new carpark is also timely because the Queensgate carpark will be closing straight after Easter for renovations as part of the Kings Square renewal project.”

Fremantle has approximately 5000 parking bays available in the city centre, including over a thousand on-street bays and more than 2300 bays in the 28 off-street carparks managed by the City.

In addition to the new Cappuccino Strip carpark, the 50-bay temporary outdoor carpark on Point Street opened in December and additional floors in the Point Street multi-storey carpark were re-opened when the City took it over in February.

First hour free parking is available at Parry Street, Beach Street and the Point Street outdoor carpark, while 30 minute free parking is available along High Street in the West End and on Adelaide Street between Parry and Queen Street.

There’s also one hour free parking surrounding Kings Square on William Street, Queen Street, Paddy Troy Mall and High Street.
