New Mill Lake washroom building planned

City of Abbotsford wants durable building to withstand vandalism and weather

Mill Lake Park is set to get a new washroom building over the winter.

The City of Abbotsford has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for a pre-fabricated washroom near the park’s Ware Street entrance. The washroom facility will be located next to the horseshoe pits and include separate men’s and women’s flush toilets.

The cost of the project isn’t yet known, as the city has only begun to solicit proposals. The city hopes to award the contract at the start of October and have the building completed by the end of the year.

The RFP says the city hopes the building “will provide a more aesthetically-pleasing, comfortable and durable alternative to the portable toilets that are currently in use at this site, while being more economical than installing a conventional washroom building.”

The city wants a building constructed of concrete, steel or other “equally durable materials to protect against vandalism and heavy use.”
