It is clear on our website that there are no toilets in the park. I had a complaint from a local resident at the weekend who has observed runners urinating in the alley behind his house, and received an email today advising that four women were urinating in the alley when he was out gardening. This behaviour is not acceptable. It is also an offence, for which you could receive a £50 Fixed Penalty Notice.

Please ensure you have used the toilet before you leave home in the morning. There are public toilets at Bath Street on the prom, and there are also toilets at Portobello Baths and Aldi on Portobello High Street. Urinating in public is the kind of activity which puts the future of our event at risk. If you are one of the people who is urinating in public, please stop. Use a toilet.
