“Unfortunately, this also means a high volume of people using our restrooms has led to worn-down facilities and sanitation issues. This renovation effort will address some long-awaited upgrades to our park restrooms and hopefully improve the park experience for all of our residents and visitors,” he said.

Restroom renovation work reportedly includes new plumbing fixtures, paint and finishes.
