San Francisco has installed an outdoor urinal in Dolores Park near the Mission District as part of the more than $20 million renovation of the recreation area in an attempt to combat a “rampant” public urination issue.
“The more options we can give them to relieve themselves, the better for the parkgoers,” San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener told the Associated Press.
Last summer, the city’s public works division made headlines by experimenting with coating some walls with a paint that causes fluid to splash back onto public urinators.
The park also now has 27 toilets for people who prefer to have privacy.
