New 24-hour public toilet for inner city

A new 24-hour free public toilet is to be installed in the inner city by Rotorua Lakes Council early next month [November].

The new Pukuatua Street toilet is to be set into the side wall of the building on the corner of Tutanekai and Pukuatua streets, known for its prominent Pink Terraces and native bird mural.

Located at one end of the Night Market strip and being a 24-hour facility, the new toilet will be able to cater to market patrons as well as Green Corridor users and other visitors to the city after hours.

The toilet is part of Rotorua Lakes Council’s Inner City Revitalisation Strategy and follows the recent closure of rest rooms also in Pukuatua Street, after the building’s lease expired.

Rotorua Lakes Council recently upgraded public toilets in Hinemoa Street and also expects to provide new family-friendly restroom facilities in the future as part of the library and child health hub to be developed in the Rotorua Library building.

In addition to the new Pukuatua Street toilet planned for installation in November, existing 24-hour inner city public toilets are also at Hinemoa Street, the i-SITE and Visitor Centre, skateboard park and at two separate locations at the Lakefront.

Other public toilets available during business hours are located at the library, council Civic Centre, Kuirau Park, Government Gardens and privately-owned facilities at Rotorua Central mall.
