Changing places facility

The City of Adelaide has a Changing Places facility located near the Quentin Kenihan Inclusive Playspace in Rymill Park.

Changing Places toilets are different to standard accessible toilets. They have extra features and more space to meet the needs of people with severe and profound disabilities, and their attendants. This state of the art facility has been built to the current Changing Places standards. The public toilet complex is designed to be a safe and inclusive place for all, including those with wheelchairs or walking frames, mothers/fathers and those with infants or children, and severely disabled people requiring the assistance of an attendant.

This facility is open at all times. 

Access is via MLAK Key.

Slings

Users must provide their own sling to use with the hoist. This is to minimise the risk of accident or contamination.

The Rymill Park/Murlawirrapurka (Park 14) Changing Places hoist is a CHS Prism Medical C450. To check the compatibility of the hoist with your sling, call the Independent Living Centre’s Advisory Service on 1300 885 886. We do not accept any responsibility for risks associated with using an incompatible sling.
