New Portland Loo Comes to Lynchview Park

Parks Commissioner Nick Fish has approved additional System Development Charge funds to allow for the installation of a Portland Loo (permanent restroom) as part of the improvements at Lynchview Park.

The Loo will be located near the new playground, in a location that was previously planned to have a porta-potty. (The playground will be located along the eastern edge of Lynchview Park, near the park entries at SE 167th Avenue). 

According to community feedback received, residents voiced that having a restroom near the playground is a top desired passive amenity.

Portland Loos have been installed in many Portland parks, including Waterfront Park, Gateway Discovery Park, Raymond Park, and Parklane Park. Made primarily of steel, they are a single-user restroom that is designed and manufactured in Portland to be ADA-accessible, safe, and graffiti-resistant. 

Port-a-potties temporarily fill the need for a public restroom, but they are frequently targets of vandalism in neighborhood parks.  The Loo at Lynchview Park will be unlocked/locked daily and will be open on a seasonal basis (spring to fall). Details about the Portland Loo’s features can be found here.
