Are there any public toilet facilities?
Many of our parks do have bathroom facilities which may include Porta-toilets in the spring, summer, and fall.

Please note that for events where attendance is 150 or more, a $25 user fee is assessed unless organizer rents unit(s)" .

Event locations with facilities include:


  • Deering Oaks – The Castle: Two indoor toilets, available when Tiqa is open for business

  • Deering Oaks: Porta-toilet, near the playground

  • Payson Park: Porta-toilet, parking lot between the park and Seaside Nursing

  • Preble Street Parking Lot: Porta-toilet

  • East End Beach – Bath House: Two indoor, open May – October (9 a.m. – 5 p.m.) porta-restrooms outside (year-round)
