A new state-of-the-art toilet facility designed to create an inclusive and accessible 'safe space' has opened at Rouken Glen Park.

Installed by East Renfrewshire Council, the new Changing Places facility has been fully kitted out to meet the needs of visitors with profound and multiple learning or physical disabilities.

A free-standing adult-sized bench, ceiling track hoist, peninsular toilet, accessible shower and colostomy shelf can now be found to the right of the park’s pavilion building and is accessed by a Radar Key.

The project also includes a new baby-changing area and upgraded public toilets as part of a 'significant investment' from The East Renfrewshire Council.

East Renfrewshire Council Leader, Councillor Owen O’Donnell said: “Having to think about toilet facilities when we’re out socialising, shopping or attending appointments is something lots of us take for granted, but for those with profound and multiple disabilities, it is something taken into consideration every time they leave their home.

"So, I’m really delighted that we now have a Changing Places Facility in Rouken Glen which will allow more people to enjoy our fantastic park, knowing that suitable facilities are available for them and their carers to use.”
