Parks Receive New Restroom & Shelter Facilities
The Sioux City Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to announce new restroom facilities have been installed at several park locations. The new prefabricated buildings are located at: Dale Street Park, Rose Hill Park, Leeds Park, and Cone Park. In addition to the various recreation amenities and green spaces, these park locations also offer free public splash pads.
The Parks and Recreation Department understands parks are wonderful places for families and children to come together and play together. The installation of new restroom facilities at public parks with splash pads was in response to park user requests and the City’s mission to improve the quality of life for all citizens. The addition of these new facilities will mean children can stay and enjoy the park locations longer. Cook Park and Miracle Field already have restroom facilities available. All restrooms are open and available for public use.
Due to the popularity of Riverside Park with the addition of Miracle Field, the extended recreational trail system, and upgrades to the Riverside Family Aquatic Center, additional shelter facilities have been installed along with a new restroom. The Department has replaced the restroom located near shelter #5 and added a new shelter, which will be identified as shelter #7, located near Miracle Field. The new restroom is available for public use and the shelter is available and can be rented through the Parks and Recreation Department. The Department is also in the process of replacing shelter #6, located near the Aquatic Center, which should be available for public use in July. Until the shelter installation has been completed, the existing shelter will remain available for public use and rentals.
