South Gate to Refurbish, Construct Park Restrooms

The city is working with a regional non-profit to implement the enhancements.


The South Gate Parks and Recreation Department has told Patch that work is being done on two public restroom projects. Renovations are being carried out in a Hollydale Regional Park restroom, while a new public toilet is to be constructed in Circle Park.

The two projects are being done with the help of a $640,000 Los Angeles County grant that was given to Amigos de Los Rios, a regional non-profit that works to create and enhance parks along the Los Angeles river, for the purpose of park improvements.

has been working closely with South Gate to refurbish many of the local parks. The neccessity for more public restrooms and the conditions of some, which have been heavily criticized by some residents at both council meetings and in Patch blogs, are partially being addressed with these two projects.

“One of our priorities is to improve our restrooms,” said Paul Adams, director of parks and recreation for city of South Gate. Further adding that the city is doing what it can to maintain park toilets despite financial difficulties. “Our restrooms get a lot of heavy use.”
