Places for everyday activities

I am working on this page.. your patience is appreciated!

As I was asked to list places that have accessible washrooms, the following will apply:
· This symbol 2 people denotes places that have washrooms which are available for a person with an assistant - such as a family washroom, or washroom which is not designated for anyone in particular and is wheelchair accessible at the very least.
· This symbol partial access denotes places for persons who are able to use canes, to access an area such as a washroom that is not fully wheelchair accessible. The main function of the place must be wheelchair accessible and the washroom, or other non-accessible area, not generally be open to the public.

There are many places which are accessible, easy to negotiate and simply do not have public washrooms and should not be left out as places to explore.
