COLUMBIA CITY â€” With the chimney taken down and gutting in progress, Columbia Cityâ€™s Park Department hopes to have new bathrooms in the pavilion at Morsches Park by next spring.
â€śThe bathrooms down here werenâ€™t nice, and itâ€™s one of those things that has needed an upgrade for some time,â€ť said Columbia City Director Mark Green.
Before the work began in the pavilion, there were two sets of menâ€™s and womenâ€™s restrooms â€” one set accessible from the inside and one from the outside.
â€śWhat weâ€™ll be doing is taking out the walls in between those bathrooms and making one large menâ€™s restroom and one large womenâ€™s restroom,â€ť said Green. â€śBoth of them will be accessible from the inside and the outside.â€ť
The project has a $5,000 budget, but Green said much of the construction cost work is being completed by the park department.
