Treetop Walkway in Fremiston is set to open to the public in November, with the hope of attracting tourists and helping local businesses to grow.
The iconic walkway was designed by Melbourne-based architectural firm, Treetop, and will feature a series of outdoor seating areas and an open-air cafe area.
Treetop CEO Paul Loughlan said the walkway would be a showcase for the company’s designs and features, and a great way to start to explore the area.
“It’s a great opportunity for the community to experience the treetops as a place to hang out and explore,” he said.
“We want to make sure people feel connected to the park and can experience it for themselves.”
The treetos were first developed in 2005, but were not commercially available until 2009, when Treetops Woody Bay in Adelaide opened.
“Treetops is one of our major projects and the treets are an essential part of the park,” Mr Loughlin said.
The treets walkway is expected to be open to public from November, and features seating areas, a cafe area, picnic area and terraces.
Mr Loughloan said the treetrades were “a great opportunity to take a closer look at some of the natural wonders that are located in the treed areas of Fremantle”.
“Trees are important, and the parks are the perfect place to bring your treetoes,” he added.
“The treetraces are really a reflection of the people who have worked so hard to get them to where they are today.”
Treetop will host a number of tours of the treeline during the opening period, and Mr Lighlan said they would highlight how the treestops are a natural part of Fremont’s history.
“Visitors can see the history of the area, learn more about the treeros and how they were created, and also get to try some delicious treestoppers,” he wrote in an update on the Treetos Facebook page.
“There’s even a special food tour for treetoppers in the cafe area!”
We’ll also be featuring the new Treetopers on the walkways in the cafes and the terraces as well as our new website.
