Many DPR Restrooms and Water Fountains Closed for the Season

Many DPR water fountains and restrooms have been winterized and are now closed for the season. 

The year-round restrooms below will remain open all winter long are:

  • Bethesda Park
  • C.M. Herndon Park
  • Crest Street Park
  • Duke Park
  • East End Park
  • Lakeview Park
  • Long Meadow Park
  • Merrick-Moore Park
  • Red Maple Park
  • Sherwood Park
  • Solite Park
  • Southern Boundaries Park
  • Twin Lakes Park
  • West Point on the Eno Park
  • Whippoorwill Park

Restrooms, drinking fountains, and other water features are winterized to protect them from freezing which leads to busted pipes. Once the threat of freezing weather subsides in the Spring, the process of de-winterizing begins.  This process is usually completed by April 1.
