Playground

Feb. 17th, 2008 update
Maryann of the Rec Centre has contacted her contact person in the City that (I believe) overseeing this washroom situation. At this time we have not heard back. I will be keeping on this to do my best to get those much needed washrooms open for this Spring of 2008. Feel free to contact the Parks, Forestry & Recreation yourself to express your thoughts. It's been going on waaaay too long.

*************
As many playground patrons may have noticed, the washrooms adjacent to the playground were not open for the 2007 playground season. As with last year. This is the result of new equipment for the indoor pool being installed on top of these washrooms. Both the contractor and city inspector need to sign off on the completion of this equipment installation before the washrooms can be opened. No firm date has been set for re-opening. We are keeping tabs on the situation and can hope come summer 2008 they will be useable along side our wonderful new playground.

When asked about providing a portable toilet for use in the interim, the Recreation Centre management cited concerns about vandalism and sanitation. This led to unsafe and unsanitary practices occurring, such as kids peeing on the grass and in the bushes, or needing to go into the offleash area to use the washroom there.

Until the playground washrooms are re-open, the Centre Manager, Maryann Dibiagio (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) has suggested that playground patrons use the indoor washrooms that are open until 9pm on weekdays and 5pm on weekends.

If you are concerned about this situation, please post your comments and contact Maryann (at the email provided above).
