Call to reopen toilets in our parks

THE closure of public toilets in Fishponds Park and Eastville Park as part of Bristol City Council’s budget cuts is being questioned again.

The council  has installed temporary toilets at St George Park for the school summer holidays following a campaign by locals. 

Many people would like to see similar action at the parks in Fishponds which are being especially well-used this year thanks to the weeks of very sunny weather.

The council wants local businesses to offer community toilets in the absence of the public toilets but only a few are doing so.

Residents say human waste is blighting Eastville Park and could become a health hazard.

And Friends of Fishponds Park says it has  missed out on potential funding because its toilets have shut.
