Parks Department: Gender neutral bathrooms coming to Commodore Barry Park
The Parks Department is planning to add gender neutral bathrooms at Commodore Barry Park.
The addition is part of the city's more than $3 million plan to upgrade the entire comfort station to the park.
The plans, first reported in the Brooklyn Paper, include a new roof, windows and better accessibility. The plan is to have the design completed by next spring.
A representative for the Parks Department said in part, "NYC Parks has and will continue to allow equal access to all our facilities, in accordance with local law. All park-goers are welcome to use the parks' facilities that match their self-identification."
Community Board 2 told News 12 that it would vote on the design of the comfort station's renovations at their general meeting next month.
