THE bones of the past have been used to liven up Vincent’s streets, with new parklets in Mount Hawthorn and William Street built from timber reclaimed from the town depot and century-old turnstiles from Perth oval.

Craftsman Andrew Christie from A Good Looking Man (who works out of the MANY building in Fremantle) constructed the rustic ramshackle parklets for Vincent city council’s project to provide more public spaces for people to have a cuppa and a chinwag.

The council’s now looking for people to nominate places for more parklets and is working on a policy for that.

If you’re interested in the meantime email place manager David Doy at mail@vincent.wa.gov.au
