Wray Ave Solar Parklet

Posted On: 30th of September, 2015
Posted In: Out and About

The Wray Ave Solar Parklet is a crowd-funded initiative to transform an un-used road space into a community space for all!

The proposed park, which will occupy the parking bay space opposite Lenny the Ox cafe in Fremantle, has been designed as a relaxation/meeting spot for public use. In other words a free for all oasis! The park will be run on solar energy so you can charge your phone, computer or even plug in some music to enjoy. As a sustainable space the park requires little to run yet it does need your support to get off the ground.
