SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco park patrons are perpetually concerned about inoperable or unsanitary restrooms, according to the San Francisco Examiner.
So it should surprise no one that a recent survey of 1,443 residents is recommending that city parks officials prioritize restroom maintenance, the article noted.
A summary of that Neighborhood Parks Council survey, which will be presented to the Recreation and Park Commission today, reveals that more than 40 percent of those people who answered questions about park restrooms have issues, the article stated.
"Cleanliness and access to restrooms is definitely one of the bigger ones," said Neighborhood Parks Council Executive Director Meredith Thomas.
According to the article, a three-month-old report from the city controller shows the Recreation and Park Department continues to make improvements with regard to restroom cleanliness.
The report rated restroom hygiene for the 2009-10 fiscal year at 92.6 percent, which represented a steady increase of 10.2 percent over the 2005-06 fiscal year, the article added.
