As you may know, the restroom building at Mt. Lake Park is slated for replacement with a new restroom building that is designed for wheelchair accessibility and improved park maintenance operations. The future restroom building will also include a garage, a staff office, drinking fountains, and a bottle filler. The par course station to the south of the building will be relocated nearby. The Recreation and Park Department recently advised us that a construction contract has been awarded and that construction will begin shortly.
Work on the project is now beginning. Earlier this month you probably noticed a portion of construction fence was put up on the backside of the restroom building. That is in preparation for the relocation of a PG&E meter and trenching. When those tasks are completed, then the restroom building will be closed to the public for abatement and demolition. That could be happening very soon. Information will be posted on the building five days before the closure to inform the public of the upcoming abatement and closure. The fenced-in area will be expanded to include the pathway in front of the building, which is the main area of construction activity. The total duration for this contract is 5 months. However inclement weather may extend this construction period.
Rec and Park plans to keep updated information on the project posted on the fence. So, that’s the best place to look for up to date information on this project. If you would like more information, Marvin Yee at RPD is coordinating this project. His email address is [email protected]
