New bathrooms coming to City Park in mid-September

| August 19, 2020 1:00 AM

City Park passersby might notice dirt where the bathrooms by the grandstands once stood. The city has removed the old bathrooms — which stood for more than four decades — in order to prep the groundwork for new bathrooms that will satisfy both ADA requirements for disabled parkgoers and Title IX requirements for Memorial Field, which North Idaho College’s women’s softball team uses.

Once installed in mid-September, the new restrooms will feature changing rooms and ADA-accessible features. Parks and Recreation director Bill Greenwood said the approximately $300,000 project represents a much-needed upgrade on the city’s list of things to do.
