Restroom renovations coming to Chartiers Park in Bridgeville
Residents cheered. A council member raised his hands in celebration.
Renovations finally are coming to the restroom facilities at Chartiers Park in Bridgeville, council members announced at the September regular monthly council meeting.
“No more curtain,” a resident exclaimed after council members announced the borough had filed an application with CharWest Council of Governments for funding to revamp the outdated restrooms at the park nestled between Chartiers Creek and Chartiers Street.
There are two older restrooms on the property.
Funding will “bring them into the 21st century,” borough engineer Joe Sites said at the meeting.
Upgrades include new fixtures, partitions and other amenities.
All of the new additions need to meet certain criteria to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, borough manager Lori Collins said.
Chartiers Park features several picnic areas, ball fields, a newer large playground space and a metal jungle gym.
