From Monday 6 July, toilets at St George Park, St Andrews Park and Brandon Hill Park will reopen, joining public toilets at Ashton Court, Blaise Estate and Oldbury Court that are already open. These toilets will be cleaned regularly throughout the day to ensure they are safe for staff and residents.
This is great news for Disabled people, older people, many women, and parents of young children, as some have not felt able to go to a park because of the lack of toilets. Too often it is a lack of knowledge, or consideration, and a failure to fully value inclusion (like closing toilets) that leads to creating disadvantage.
Two new temporary toilet blocks have also been placed in Queen Square and by the Amphitheatre. These toilets are now open between 10am-10pm, and are cleaned throughout the day . The toilets are closed overnight.
Let’s hope more are opened soon.
