New toilet for London Fields

A new toilet has opened in popular London Fields, near the southern end, close to Broadway Market.

Consisting of two female and two unisex cubicles, one of which is ambulant accessible, plus a dedicated disabled toilet, the toilet was opened by Hackney Council on Monday.

The toilet is free and will be locked out of hours, although the external screened urinal will be open at all times. They are in addition to the toilet already in the middle of the park.

Broadway Market and London Fields, are both very popular, so this additional toilet has been built in response to popular demand from traders, their customers, park users and residents.

We want it to be as accessible as possible and plan to start work on a further two new entrances in Autumn. The immediate area of the park will also be improved by the plants and shrubs we plan to put in.
