Time for public toilets in popular public park?



Independent TD Denis Naughten says that such is the popularity of Loughnaneane Park in Roscommon Town that the time has come for public toilets to be installed there.

  He’s now calling on Roscommon County Council to examine the possibility of locating public toilets at the well-known amenity.

  “This is an issue which will be familiar, in particular, to parents of young children who regularly use the park to visit the castle, duck pond and the playground as well as the park’s other amenities,” explained Denis Naughten. “At present there are no toilets in the park, or in the immediate vicinity of the park, which creates a difficulty for those using the facilities”.

  Deputy Naughten noted that prior to Christmas there had been confirmation that one of the towers in Roscommon Castle will be opened up to the public along with upgraded footpaths, floodlighting and bus parking and turning facilities.

  “The park is set to attract increasing numbers of visitors and the addition of public toilets will become even more important,” he concluded.
