Over the years, Bancroft Park has served as a town square for our historic west side commercial district. Although our park grounds provide ample space for festivities, there is a lack of safe, open, and ADA accessible public restrooms. This negatively impacts the use and enjoyment of the park. At present, park-goers who wish to enjoy Bancroft Park must choose to go elsewhere to use restrooms. This causes difficulties, especially during large community events, because the poor bathroom provisions are not conducive to accommodate the flow of traffic in and around the park. In addition, the existing bathrooms are neither easily accessible nor ADA-compliant and cannot be opened for use without first acquiring a city permit. This lack of clean, usable toilets deters people from visiting our community and diminishes the value of a safe, family-friendly environment that OCC strives to emulate.
