The opening of a fully accessible bathroom on Auckland’s North Shore will create inclusion for those who are typically left out, Stuff reports. Features of the facility – at Gould Reserve, near Takapuna Beach Reserve and playground – include a height-adjustable adult changing table and sink, a ceiling track hoist, a shower, handrails and a toilet with space on both sides for two carers to assist its user. “The freedom a toilet like this gives is immense,” said a local mum, whose son will now be able to join in with a group of disabled teens who regularly met in Takapuna after school.
