Thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond, a new Portland Loo will be installed to replace Restroom A (also known as the "Tin Shed") at Pier Park. Pier Park is located at N Bruce Avenue and Lombard Street. The project also includes a new drinking fountain and new ADA accessible pathways to improve access to the Loo and informational kiosks.
Construction will start the week of January 28, 2019 and be completed by summer 2019.
Why install a Loo?
Portland Loos have been installed in many Portland parks, including Waterfront Park, the North and South Park Blocks, Gateway Discovery Park, Parklane Park, Raymond Park, and Wilkes Park. Made primarily of steel, they are a single-user restroom that is designed and manufactured in Portland to be safe, secure, and graffiti-resistant. Read more about their design and features here. Port-a-potties do temporarily fill the need for a public restroom, but they are frequently targets of vandalism in neighborhood parks.
While most of the downtown Loos are open 24/7, Loos in neighborhood parks such as Pier Park can be locked and open only during park hours. When open for use, they are typically unlocked every morning by Parks maintenance staff, cleaned and stocked, and locked in the evenings.
