Recreation and Parks Department (RPD) has decided to combine the 2008 Bond project Restroom Renovation with the 2012 Bond project on water conservation to make the process more efficient and less costly.

The objective of the Water Conservation project is to maximize water savings through conservation and innovation by replacing antiquated irrigation systems that are leaking and poorly laid out; improving irrigation design and efficiency, including the installation of "smart" controllers; and planting lawn alternatives, including "no mow" grasses that are native to the western U.S.

Scope of Work

For the Water Conservation portion of the project RPD will replace irrigation system and quick coupler line with water-efficient components and improved layout; install booster pump to address poor water pressure; and replace areas of high-water using lawn with low-water using grasses (also known as "no mow" grass), understory plantings and trees where appropriate.

A new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible restroom will be constructed.

Construction Schedule

Opened to the public in Spring 2017.
