The city council voted in favor of the installation of permanent restrooms at Central Park. Currently there’s no such facility, only portapotties are available during concert season.
The public washroom will accommodate three people in each of the women and men’s portions and will be located to the west of Central Park Lane, just south of the YMCA.
“I think the public will find this to be such a relief, no pun intended,” said Councilman Paul Hinterlong.
The city staff expects thousands to utilize the restroom during concert season when Central Park has the greatest number of visitors, and will also serve those who frequent the adjoining park and playground.
