Restrooms In Parks

Not all parks have restrooms available.  Parks & Recreation provides restrooms to high use municipal parks, playgrounds and sports fields.  The soccer, little league and softball leagues provide restrooms to their fields as well that may not be open to public use when league play is not going on.  Parks & Recreation does not provide portable restrooms on request nor do we do a special call out for cleaning prior to a rental.  If the park you request does not have a restroom available and you require one for your event, or if your wish a special cleaning/pumping service call to an existing can prior to your event, it is up to you to provide and pay for it.  Contract Rent-A-Can at 258-2267 and they can take care of your restroom needs.  Rent-A-Can requires advance notice, and estimates 100 uses per can before service is needed.
