Are there enough public bathrooms?

Do you think there are enough public bathrooms where you live? Or should there be more? Do you use them or do you wait until you get back home? Should all public parks also have bathrooms?
The City of Montreal once boasted an impressive fleet of 20 or so art deco-inspired public toilets, built in the 1930s to improve hygiene and create work during the Great Depression.

Locally in the news, some nut has destroyed some public restrooms. The City and County will have cameras installed now on. I ride the bus so public restrooms is an important issue with me. Thanks to retailers like Target, Walmart and Walgreens that have restrooms with security guard on the job makes it safer too.

Most of the time public parks will have a restroom. But it does sometimes surprise me that in busy areas there are usually not many public bathrooms. I mean, you CAN go into some businesses and use theirs. But some businesses don't consider their bathrooms are public, but for their patrons.

@1hopefulman It was better last time we were there thank goodness. Restaurants and hotels had toilets but we didn't always want a coffee or a drink. Sometimes we just asked nicely if we could use the facilities. In Australia all service stations have toilets.
@1hopefulman OK.. I read about these vegetables that they prevent hormon related cancer both for men and women.. then it is better eat them at home.. At least they are healthy.. Just found this article:
Broccoli helps to improve vision & digestive system, detoxify the body, maximize vitamin & mineral uptake, prevent allergic reactions, boost immunity, & protect the skin.
@buenavida Yes, they are good for our health and I include them in my diet. The problem is that I drink a lot of water and eat a lot of juicy fruits and vegetables. The solution is knowing where all the bathrooms are. However, in some ares there are none.
@marguicha My closest shopping center is a 30 minute walk and if one is waiting for a bus then it can take more than 30 minutes to get there. I like to drink lots of water and that can be a problem. So, I have to wait till I'm home and will be staying there a few hours before I can drink my quota of water.

There is a decline in public toilets these days in the UK but you can use them in shopping malls, pubs or restaurants as long as you are buying something from them. I do not really like using public toilets but sometimes needs must !
