Torrey Pines Reserve facilities need some TLC

Torrey Pines Reserve, one of our biggest tourist attractions, is starting to feel the state’s deep budget cuts. The bathrooms, especially during the height of the tourist season, are frequently filthy to the point of being disgusting.

I frequent this park and am always saddened to see its bathrooms so filthy. Parents often looked disgusted and petrified to bring their little kids into these filthy stalls. When they do, their little feet stick to the urine stained, toilet paper littered around the floor of the bathroom. The stench is absolutely revolting in most stalls and feces is sometimes around the edges of the bowls.

It’s at its worst in the a.m. and when it rains; no one shows up to clean but the park is full and people who need to use the restrooms after a hike/run/walk. I’ve written Parks and Rec. Not much has changed.

They either can’t or don’t want to do anything about it. I care about our park (all of it) even if they don’t.
