The City of Canada Bay is intending to install a self-automated unisex public toilet in Halliday Park to serve park users. The installation of this accessible toilet is in line with the principles outlined in Council’s Social Infrastructure Strategy and the goals of the Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2017 - 2021.

Halliday Park is a place that attracts people for many different activities, including use of the children’s playground, bocce, dog walking, and exercise. The intent of installing this facility is to improve the park experience and comfort of existing users.

Currently the nearest public toilets are located in Five Dock Park and Fred Kelly Place which are both approximately a 10-15 minute walk from Halliday Park.

Community consultation

We first consulted in July 2017 and while the project was deferred at the time, Council has received regular requests from the community to install a toilet since this time. Having reviewed community feedback and after conducting further site investigations, we have made some changes to the original proposal and we are seeking your feedback on these changes.

We have moved the toilet’s proposed location to the North Western corner of the park. This new location remains along the accessible path and allows for ease of use for families using the children’s playground.

We are also seeking community input on the appearance of the facility, with three options presented below for your consideration.

Consultation opportunities

We invited the community to provide feedback between 25 May and 22 June 2020. We are currently reviewing feedback and will alert participants of the next steps shortly.

Proposed toilet location

SURVEY

Provide your feedback on the proposal here

Toilet location

Council has conducted investigations to locate the best placement for the toilet that will provide both access for all park users and limited disruption to the park's water views.

Please review the proposed location maps on the page above.

E.g. If you think the toilet should go somewhere else, where should it go? If you do not support the proposal, why?

Toilet design

Council has proposed three options for the finish of the toilet.

Please review the options above on the page above.

Please note: the proposed toilet is singular and the second option (photo finish) would be a photo which camouflages it into the park surroundings e.g. trees similar to those planted in the park.

The survey form is now closed. Thanks for your contributions.
