Re-opening of the Craws Nest toilets

Quote from Bob Duncan, Convener

“We are pleased to be able to open the refurbished Craws Nest toilets with the inclusion of a newly installed, accessible child and adult Changing Places toilet.

Dundee City Council recognise the need to provide facilities for disabled people who cannot use a standard accessible toilet.

We hope this work and recent opening of the new Wildlife Centre Cafe & entrance facility will really put Camperdown Country Park on the must visit list and the park will become a place where every one can enjoy the facilities, including those with profound and multiple disabilities.”

The work on the building included:

  • Building a Changing Places toilet which has a peninsular (central) toilet, an adult sized height adjustable changing bench, an overhead hoist and enough space for a wheelchair and two carers and access through the radar key entry system.
  • The ladies toilets now have 6 WCs increasing from the previous 3, along with additional hand washing and a new hot water supply.
  • The gents toilets have increased urinals and an additional WC.
  • The previous accessible toilet had been changed into baby changing facility and can be used as a private baby feed or medicine room.

PAMIS are to include this site on their web based map showing the location of all Changing Places toilets.

Information on changing places toilets can be found at http://www.changing-places.org or http://pamis.org.uk

  • Please note that the toilets are situated across from the entrance to the Wildlife Centre…
