“It sounds better if you call it an Esplanade”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

But in reality it is just a part of Fremantle whose main purpose is to allow a thoroughfare to different parts of the town.

There is nothing particularly inspiring about the greenery but it isn't unpleasant and if you get the chance to spend a couple of days rummaging around Fremantle (and that is something you should try to do) it may be a useful marker in order to get your bearings.

It is right near a couple of eating options and may provide a sheltered spot to sit down in.

“A place to rest in the shade”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

Plenty of Norfolk pines provide some nice shade over some scrubby grass. A pleasant place to rest in the shade, and perhaps families to play. This is the transition from the Freemantle shopping area to the fishing harbor area.

Lovely grassed areas and playgrounds for children. Adjoining restaurants are lively and must be included in all visits to Fremantle. Esplanade Pub a great spot to relax and watch the world go by

“Grassland is a bit scrubby”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

The Esplanade consists of a park with a kiosk, playground and old ferris wheel.

The grass is a bit patchy and sandy, but with the shady norfolk pines is a decent place for kids to play.

For the visitor, this area looks a bit tired and carry on to the Fishing Boat Harbour.

“Nice way to spend the Afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

We took the train to Fremantle from downtown and went to the little beach by the marina... Kids had a great time swimming. Was a small clean quite beach.. We showered and then picked up fish and chips on the beach.. I even had oysters!! Sat in the park and ate while the kids ran around.. Walked over to the swings and slides.. Walked to the shops and had coffee on cappuccino street..window shopped and the met friends for dinner and drinks at little creatures. Great day!
