For your convenience

SIGNIFICANT improvements and changes to the amenities across the City of Glenorchy are continuing.

This follows Glenorchy City Council’s adoption of a 10-year Public Toilet Strategy in January 2020, which Glenorchy Mayor Kristie Johnston welcomed as an important commitment to the community.

“Public toilets are an important service to our community,” she said.

“Having an inviting facility where you need it is important to all of us at some stage.

“Council has identified a range of ways to improve the experience for our people and visitors, including some new facilities and major upgrades.”

There are close to 20 facilities across the city which all have convenient hooks installed on the back of all cubicle doors as a standard fixture.

The facilities team completed upgrade works in the first month of the strategy, including general maintenance of existing toilets.

Improved signage is scheduled to be installed over the next year, helping locals and visitors to find the facilities around Glenorchy.

Giblins Reserve will be the first major project in the strategy to receive a brand-new toilet block.

This popular waterside spot has been previously let down by its current amenity, which is uninviting and located on the wrong side of the park drive

It will be replaced later this year by a new, user-friendly facility in a more convenient location.

In the next five years, plans are underway to replace the main public toilet facility in the Moonah CBD – a major upgrade to the lower toilet block in Tolosa Park and the addition of a new facility at Windermere foreshore.

“Council is committed to making life better for the community,” Major Johnston said.

“Easy access to better facilities will enable people to spend quality time out and about in places they love.”
