Playgrounds will remain closed but public toilets will be re-opened as the City of Greater Geraldton responds to changes in the coronavirus pandemic.

City chief executive Ross McKim said staff were closely monitoring the “rapidly changing situation” and making changes as needed.

When councillors met online on Tuesday, they agreed to trial re-opening of some public toilets and barbecue facilities, and the popular Ellendale Pool picnic area, most of which were closed in March as coronavirus restrictions tightened.

Public toilets that will be open from tomorrow include those at Glendinning, Derna, Maitland, Spalding, Muir, Rundle and Woorree East parks, as well as the foreshore water park, Eadon Clarke oval, the foreshore Rubiks Cube and west foreshore youth precinct, Batavia Marina, Drummond Cove, Rocks Laneway and Midalia, Pages and Back beaches.

City playgrounds will remain closed for now.

The city has urged community members to be respectful of the facilities in order to keep them open.
