You asked, so we asked: When will renovated Lincoln Park beach restrooms reopen?

Thanks to those who sent questions and photos (the one above is from Mike Munson) wondering why the renovated Lincoln Park beach restrooms aren’t open yet, though the construction fence is down. The question came up after we reported earlier this week on the pause in work on the new Alki restroom building (same contractor, JEM). Our contact for this project also is Seattle Parks’ Kelly Goold; he says, “Parks crews wanted time to clean up the landscape that was behind the construction fence and get the building ready to open. I believe the goal is to open it up before the holiday weekend.” The work started last fall and was primarily aimed at improving the restroom building’s accessibility.

    To Kelly at Parks: don’t worry about the cuteness – just open the bathrooms! You can trim the bushes and fix the landscaping later! I would much rather use a bathroom with a few shrubs hanging around the doorway than a stinking port-a-potty!

    I saw a group of little kids yesterday (camp?) all standing in a big line to use a porta potty yesterday at Lincoln Park. Open the restrooms! They have been closed for almost 10 months. This is ridiculous.

    Do you need any further evidence that there is no sense of urgency with any city department?

    Open the dang bathrooms. I can’t believe how long this is taking. crazy. And the honey buckets have been falling apart for some time, broken door etc. Then look at how poorly they mow etc with all the horsetail grass around benches etc. You’d think they’d hired some lazy teenagers to do the work, so hard to actually do a full job.  So don’t expect any speed on getting to the ehm…trimming work mentioned above.

Sorry, comment time is over.
