Washrooms on tap for McGuire Lake Park

Washrooms will be going up in McGuire Lake Park next year.

Washrooms will be going up in McGuire Lake Park next year.

City council approved an expenditure of $15,000 in the 2016 budget, to be added to $25,000 in reserve, for a total cost of $40,000.

“That’s been on the wish list for a number of years,” explained Rob Niewenhuizen, the city’s director of engineering and public works. “We’ve had a number of people inquiring.”

He said lots of activities take place in the large open space of the park such as weddings and other events. He also noted that many people take an afternoon walk around the park, and students use it as part of their route from Salmon Arm Secondary’s Jackson campus to downtown.

“We do have the Jackson field washrooms up top, but it’s a little far to walk and not always open – not like the washrooms downtown.”

Niewenhiuzen said it will be a prefab building, near 10th Street NE, the road that runs past the hospital, as that’s where connections can be made to water and sewer lines.
