Refurbished toilets for Merton Rec Reserve

Published on 31 May 2024


Merton Recreation Reserve users can now take advantage of the newly refurbished toilet block following Council’s recent works.

The renewal project has seen the block repainted inside and out, as well as the installation of new Colourbond roofing, Laminex cubicles and doors and new sinks, taps, lights and flooring.

Mayor Cr Steve Rabie said that the upgrade responded to community concerns about the state of the toilet block.

“We have been listening to what our outlying communities are saying and this facility has been high on the priority list for Merton,” said Cr Rabie.

The works, which were completed at a cost of $64,927, come with future costs savings in maintenance and repairs.

Margaret FitzGerald, Merton Recreation & Memorial Hall Reserves’ Chair spoke about the importance of the refurbishment for the reserve.

"We are delighted to see the completion of the newly refurbished toilets at the Recreation Reserve. This upgrade significantly enhances the facilities making them more comfortable and welcoming for our community and visitors,” Margaret said.

“The Council has consulted with community members on the project at the outset and as it has progressed—responding to our recommendations and needs. We are pleased with the commitment from Mansfield Shire Council to the upgrading of our facilities in Merton--it boosts the community's pride to be receiving this renewed installation."
