Funding from the voter-approved Parks Replacement Bond was used to make restroom improvements at Ed Benedict Park to provide a year-round restroom option for park users, particularly those using the skate park. Ed Benedict Park currently has two restrooms: 1) In center of park, near SE 102nd Avenue and 2) the east side of the park, near the Portland Memory Garden and Community Garden.
The Parks Replacement Bond originally planned for installation of a Portland Loo at Ed Benedict Park near the skate park. After further analysis, Parks staff has determined the existing restrooms nearest to the skate park in Ed Benedict Park (near SE 102nd Avenue) could be winterized with some minor improvements and kept open year-round to fill this need.
The winterization work was completed in 2017, and the asphalt and concrete pathways around and near the restrooms were replaced in September 2018 to meet ADA requirements.
