About

Samson precinct is bounded by South Street to the north, Stock Road to the west, Winterfold Road to the south and the City of Fremantle/City of Melville boundary to the east.

Samson is named in honour of one of Fremantle’s most noted families. Lionel Samson arrived in Fremantle in 1829 and started Lionel Samson and Sons, the state’s oldest established business.  Two of his descendants have been Mayor of Fremantle. Sir William Frederick Samson served as Mayor for more than 20 years in the 1950s and 60s.

 Many people with small children know our famous Sir Frederick Samson Park which has been home to the City of Fremantle’s annual Children’s Fiesta event.  This Park is an amazing place and is the last bit of remnant bushland of its kind in the Fremantle area. More than 80 different kinds of ants and over 700 species of insects, bugs and spiders live there and there’s more than 80 native plants, trees and shrubs here. Samson Park is a protected area, one of the Bush Forever Sites.  It is a very nice place to visit for a relaxing walk.

Samson precinct members meet every second month and welcome new members.  Visit our Agenda and Minutes page for an update on the topics and projects we are discussing.
