To address the lack of public toilets at Grand Bend Beach, the town of Lambton Shores has decided to install two self-cleaning restrooms.


During the summer, Grand Bend, Ont., attracts large crowds due to its sandy beaches and Lake Huron. However, this surge in visitors exacerbates the issue of inadequate bathroom facilities. Business owners, like Nathan Ross of Dairy Dip restaurant, struggle to accommodate non-customers seeking to use their restrooms. To address this, the town is investing in new self-cleaning washrooms from Urben Blu, capable of withstanding increased demand and operating year-round. Lambton Shores Mayor Doug Cook emphasizes the necessity of these facilities to alleviate pressure on businesses and public restrooms, especially during peak tourist seasons.
