The City of Long Beach, through its Tidelands Capital Improvement Program Division, announced today the completion of the newest public restrooms at Rainbow Harbor, with architectural elements that complement the nearby Aquarium of the Pacific.

"This and other improvements to our coastal facilities will be a big benefit to public health and safety for residents and visitors who take advantage of our beautiful weather and location to enjoy our hospitality year-round," said Vice Mayor Suja Lowenthal.

The 926-square-foot facility features 12 individual stalls, specialized tile design and building façade improvements, along with sinks, drinking fountains, bike racks and improved landscaping.

A total of 11 public restroom facilities have been fully renovated or reconstructed in the Tidelands area along the coast within the last two years. All of the existing facilities were in need of replacement to improve security and utility in these popular beach and harbor destinations.  The work at most beach locations consisted of installing individual stall restroom facilities and improving access. The total construction cost was approximately $4.7 million for all restroom facilities, and was financed with Tidelands Capital Improvement Funds.
