What started out as a vision and a sketch on a napkin is now a reality as the new public restrooms in Riverbottom Park are now officially open. Members of the Montrose City Council along with city staff, joined representatives with Ridgway Valley Enterprises and Motley Architecture & Design to celebrate the project Tuesday afternoon.
City Councilors approved funds in 2018 to replace the decades-old restroom facility with a modern facility that sits above the Uncompahgre River’s floodplain.
The new building is accessible to all citizens by standards set forth by the Americans with Disabilities Act. New picnic areas, large sunshades, patio lighting, and landscaping pieces have now been installed.
Each restroom also features changing areas, which were designed for people visiting the Montrose Water Sports Park adjacent to the new facility.
The facility will be closed each night at dusk, using pre-programmed automated locks that will unlock the facility doors each morning.
Thankful for the opportunity!New restrooms completed!
Thanks to Ridgway Valley Enterprises, the new public restrooms in Riverbottom Park will open for public use this week. Picnic tables, sun shades, patio lighting, and other cover materials will be installed when they arrive. The public is welcomed to attend a grand opening of the facility February 5 at 3 p.m.
