What a Relief! LoDo Gets a Mobile Public Restroom Today
What a relief! Lower downtown was the focus of this week's cover story, "From LoDo to BroDo," and if you're heading there this weekend, whether to visit the farmers' market at Union Station or to hit the clubs, you'll find a much-needed amenity: a public bathroom.
This morning the Denver Department of Public Works is rolling out its new, mobile restroom, parking it in the 1700 block of Wynkoop Street, where it will be open from 10 a.m. to midnight today and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. tomorrow — with an attendant on hand at all times.
Another mobile restroom off Colfax Avenue.

Downtown's lack of restroom facilities has been a common complaint from residents and tourists alike. Last fall the city reopened the restroom at Skyline Park, and in March it introduced a mobile restroom at Colfax and Clarkson. That pilot program is continuing (albeit in a much more modest facility than the one coming to LoDo), and the city is also working to reopen restrooms in Commons Park and at the McNichols Building in Civic Center Park.
Find out more about the rolling restroom, including future locations, on the denver.gov site.
