UNUSED JACKA PARK WORKERS’ SHED RECYCLED AS A MUCH NEEDED PUBLIC TOILET AMENITY
May 25 2020
After an 8 -year campaign mounted by the Friends of Freshwater and the Soldiers Avenue Stakeholders Group, a community toilet has finally been opened for use in Jacka Park.
Jacka Park, despite being heavily used by schoolchildren, playground toddlers and for picnics and commemorations, has never had a toilet in its more than 30 years as a public green space. Whenever an event was held, portable toilets had to be hired.
A previously unused Workers Shed was proposed by FOF for conversion as a ready-made alternative.
With the overarching assistance of our Curl Curl Ward Councillors including Mayor Michael Regan, work began recently.
The new amenity has disabled access, baby change facilities and an outdoor hygiene basin.
This is another good example of the community and Council working close together.
Feel free to pay a visit and “spend a penny”.
