New Toilets at Wentworth Falls Lake Now Open

Ward 2 Councillors, Chris Van der Kley, Romola Hollywood and Brent Hoare (with dog Thea) inspect the new loo at Wentworth Falls Lake, which opened this week.
The new toilet block at Wentworth Falls Lake is complete and open for use.

The facility, large enough to cater for visiting school and community groups, features a brickwork pattern inspired by the markings on the body of the Blue Mountains Water Skink. The Giant Dragonfly is also represented in a motif on the adjacent gate design, which is based on original artwork by Darug man Chris Tobin.

The building is part of a broad upgrade project at Wentworth Falls Lake Reserve which includes a boardwalk and viewing platform, interpretive signage, car park and landscaping works.

The project is funded by the Federal Government and Blue Mountains City Council, with grant funding being awarded in March 2017 under the Community Development Grants Program.

Blue Mountains Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill, said: “The swamps that border Wentworth Falls Lake are part of an important ecological community that is listed as vulnerable.

“Two endangered species that form an integral part of this unique and fragile environment are the Blue Mountains Water Skink (Eulamprus leuraensis) and the Giant Dragonfly (Petalura gigantea), so it’s lovely to see these featured in the design of the building.”

Another feature of the toilet block is a large awning, which will provide shade and shelter to any visiting groups during inclement weather.

“The lake is looking great. It is lovely to see all of Council’s hard work coming together, especially given how popular the area is,” Cr Mark Greenhill said.

Further works will be commencing at the lake in coming months, to improve adjacent car parking and pedestrian connections to the toilet block. While these works are being carried out and landscaping is being established, the new toilets will be accessible from the park side only.
