Carbonear rec complex opens gender neutral change rooms

By Chris Lewis/September 23, 2021

The Carbonear swimming pool is now outfitted with gender neutral washrooms.

The Town’s Recreation Director Rob Button took some time at last week’s public council meeting to address one of the latest changes to the Town’s swimming pool and recreation complex.

Button said the gender neutral washrooms are fully functional now, save for some small “deficiencies” that he hoped to have resolved in the coming weeks.

He noted there has been some feedback.

“There have been some concerns with the type of change this is,” Button said. “But, we do have options for just male or just female changing rooms, too.”

Button said the department is working on getting some signs up for the gender neutral room, but wants to ensure the signs contain the proper terminology.

That, he said, is coming soon.
