Q & A

Why don't some parks have restrooms? Many of the District's parks are built in detention ponds, flood plains or flood ways and construction of restroom facilities with their related plumbing is either not feasible or not permitted by law.

Restroom Cleanliness
The Park Disrict does its best to provide park users with clean, working restrooms. During peak summer use, the restrooms are cleaned twice daily. If you should find a park restroom needing assistance, please contact the Park District Maintenance Staff at (847)362-0920.
