Towradgi’s new toilet block opened

REFURBISHED male and female toilet and shower blocks, and a new self-cleaning Exeloo, have been opened in Towradgi Park in time for summer.

The park, on Towradgi Road, is also home to Wollongong City Council’s award-winning Towradgi Playground and Towradgi rock pool.


The toilet blocks were closed in July for the extensive renovation, which included the replacement of the sewage pumping station, the installation of marine-grade stainless steel metalwork, and a new roof. The toilets’ flooring, surrounding footpaths and seating between the blocks have also been replaced.


The reopening means there’s now two toilets, a urinal and three showers in the men’s block, with three toilets and three showers in the women’s block. All the showers are controlled using a touch flow system, which reduces water wastage.


The automated Exeloo, which has been installed next to the toilet blocks, is a new addition providing facilities for people with disabilities visiting this area. Council has installed other self-cleaning Exeloos in our city, including at Lang Park in Wollongong.
