The demolition of the Hank Edwards Reserve toilet block began promptly on Monday 14 March 2022. The perimeter fence was quickly erected and the men’s toilet block was knocked down.

Some neighbours had asked for and were given a few specific concrete blocks as mementos and the wooden Men and Women signs with sunbursts were saved for the Ratepayer’s Association archives.
