Bush Reserve, Gavin Park and Jones Park - New public toilets

Merri-bek Council Public Toilet Strategy (DOC 622Kb) and Appendix D of the Public Toilet Strategy (updated February 2016) (PDF 512Kb) aims to provide safe, accessible, clean and environmentally sustainable public toilets across the municipality. The strategy includes guidance on public toilet locations, opening hours and design principles and maintenance.

As part of the 2015-16 Capital Works Program the following public toilets were completed. 

They are fully accessible, unisex and open from dawn to dusk via a solar powered automatic locking system. The roof catchment area provides water to inbuilt storage tanks (1000 litre) to assist with cistern flushing.
