Our office is taking this opportunity to inform you of changes coming this summer to the operating hours of the permanent washrooms at Andrew Haydon Park.
The in-building washrooms will from now forward be open only when staff are on site in the park , from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 7 days a week.
Three times during the last operating season sewage pumps had to be replaced as a result of patrons flushing objects such as diapers and clothing down the toilets.
Because of the financial cost of repairs, as well as health and safety concerns for staff who had to clean up the sewage backed up into their office area, these washrooms will only be open when staff are on site.
Staff have added portable toilets to the park to accommodate patrons after hours which will be monitored on a regular basis.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns my team and I are happy to answer them.
