Since pissing wherever you please is a popular pastime in Dolores Park, the city has decided to go ahead and install a public urinal, offering up a new kind of relief to park goers.
We came across the news on KTVU this morning, which detailed the plans to follow the French and build a $15K "Pissoir" in the park. The goal here is obvious: to potty train everyone all over again.
As part of the park renovation, the city does plan to add 31 new bathroom stalls to the existing potties in the park. But anyone who's spent gay pride in the park knows that no amount of outhouses will ever be enough to satisfy the masses who visit Dolores Park every week -- many of whom are boozing, which really doesn't help the bladder.

So that's how city leaders came about the idea for a public urinal. According to KTVU, the pPod will be located at the southwest corner of the park near the J-Church Muni stop at 20th and Church streets.
It "is essentially a seven-foot screen with some plants on it and an area drain that empties into the sewer system," Jake Gilchrist, the lucky pee project manager, told the news station.
Also, he said, the semi-cylindrical mesh screen will be open in the back, making the pissoir wheelchair accessible.
Gilchrist assured reporters that the public potty will be installed in the next coming months So can you please try and hold "it" until then?
