The Ballard Commons Park will soon have a permanent public restroom — the Portland Loo will be installed at the park by summer 2019.
The plan for the new toilet first came up three years ago; after extensive community outreach, Seattle Parks and Recreation determined that the Portland Loo would be the best toilet design because of its graffiti-resistant stainless steel walls and angled slats that make it partly open-air, which are designed to discourage drug use. It’s equipped by solar-powered lights and has an outdoor hand wash. Seattle Parks say the toilet will be installed in the southeast corner of the park.
