Changing Places are fully secure accessible toilets with an adult change table and hoist that meet the requirements of people with complex care needs.
The Canning Changing Places facility was opened in August 2020. It is located behind the City of Canning administration building, surrounded by accessible pathways.
Changing Place facilities are designed so that they are completely accessible and provide sufficient space and equipment for people who are not able to use the toilet independently.

Access is via George Street West. Turn off Albany Highway onto George Street West and take the second entrance to the City of Canning Administration Building carpark, this will take you to the Civic Centre Park. The Changing Places will be on your left.

City staff can also open the facility during office hours (8.15am to 5pm, Monday to Friday) – please see City staff at the Administration Building reception desk for access.
