  • Winterization of Restrooms & Drinking Fountains

    Parks and Recreation Department staff have begun the winterization of restrooms and drinking fountains in parks across the city. This is required to prevent pipes from freezing and bursting when temperatures drop below freezing. From now through spring, restrooms and drinking fountains will remain closed. The only exception is the restroom at Bush Central Barkway, which has pipes designed to withstand freezing temperatures. The drinking fountains for humans and dogs at the Bush Central Barkway will remain off throughout winter, but the sinks inside the restrooms will remain operational.
