DROP IN AT THE RESTROOM FOR A PIT STOP

A parcel land in Salisbury, South Australia, where tyres were manufactured for over 40 years, is now a significant parkland, complete with a Landmark restroom.

The 6.8-hectare site in Salisbury South was donated to the council by Bridgestone after the company wound up its local production in 2010.

As part of the multi-million-dollar project, Landmark Products designed and manufactured a restroom with three unisex, fully accessible cubicles, each with a stainless-steel basin, and one with a baby change table.

A sizeable service duct ensures the cistern is protected from vandalism, and easily accessed for servicing or repair if needed.

An attractive curved Colorbond roof lends itself to the overall style of the park, which also includes plenty of playground equipment, a flying fox, a fitness loop, sheltered barbecue and picnic facilities, and a new car park.

The playground included climbable vehicles, including an ambulance, which featured rubber tyres – paying homage to Bridgestone, as does the name “Bridgestone Reserve”.

The park was officially opened in March by Gillian Aldridge, Mayor of the City of Salisbury, and Andrew Moffatt, the Managing Director of Bridgestone for Australia and New Zealand.

“Public facilities such as these play a significant role in supporting the health and well-being of the people of Salisbury,” Mayor Aldridge said.

“I believe this fantastic new Reserve is going to be very popular with residents and visitors to our city. It boasts a diverse array of activities that can be enjoyed year-round.”
