Annual Park Restroom Season

Due to weather limitations, the annual park restroom season runs from the first weekend in May through the third weekend in September. The Park Board approved and funded this extended season in 2017. This restroom season includes all parks except Riverfront Park, Manito Park, Finch Arboretum, the SE Sports Complex and the Dwight Merkel Sports Complex.

Please Note: Early spring and later in the fall, portable toilets will be placed at youth sports sites and the more popular locations such as Mission Park, Audubon Park, Comstock Park and Franklin Park.
