Major projects

Claremont Aquatic Centre splash pad construction 

Work is underway to build our much-anticipated water playground in time for the busy summer season. The 47-year-old toddler pool is being replaced with interactive features including jet sprays; channels with pumps, wheels and gates; and a mega bucket water dump.

Freshwater Bay Museum redevelopment 

The Town of Claremont’s historic Freshwater Bay Museum site is being redeveloped to increase access to heritage, education and culture for our community. A steering group has been established to bring the $1.26 million project to build stage.

Claremont Train Station upgrade

The Public Transport Authority identified Claremont Train Station as the best location for trains to turn back towards Perth to support the Forrestfield-Airport Link.  The proposed project also includes a broader upgrade of the station's facilities.
