One more week to take advantage of Freo's free parking

Visitors to Fremantle have one week left to take advantage of the City of Fremantle’s free on-street parking.

As part of a suite of measures to support local businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Fremantle decided back in March to offer free on-street parking in the city centre until 30 June.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said with one week of free parking to go now was the perfect time to come to Freo and savour all of the delights the port city had to offer.

“It’s been wonderful over these past few weeks to see Freo come back to life again as the COVID-19 restrictions have eased,” Mayor Pettitt said.

“The free on-street parking has been a very important measure to help those businesses that have continued to trade throughout the COVID-19 restrictions by making it easier for customers to make a quick dash into town to pop into a shop or pick up a takeaway.

“Unfortunately it can’t last forever because the City’s finances have also been hit hard by COVID-19 and parking is an important source of revenue for us.

“But there’s still one week of free on-street parking left, and with further easing of COVID-19 restrictions coming into effect on Saturday now is the time for people to come down to Freo and reacquaint themselves with their favourite shops, restaurants and cafés.”

While on-street parking in the Fremantle City Centre is free until 30 June, time limits still apply.
