The Logansport Parks & Recreation Department would like to remind the public that as cold weather approaches, it will be necessary to shut down restrooms and drinking fountains in the city parks. The process of shutting water off for the winter and clearing water from pipes is very labor intensive and requires a 2-3 week window to take care of all the water lines in the parks. Without these measures, water freezes and expands inside the pipes, breaking the pipes and creating expensive and inconvenient repairs.
Staff will begin shutting down ALL drinking fountains and restrooms with a lower priority during the week of October 23, 2023, including Dykeman Park, and Muehlhausen Park. The Cole Fountain and the Heritage Park Fountain will also be closed for the season during the week of October 23. During the week of October 30, Riverside, Huston and Fairview Parks restrooms will be shut down.
Parks Staff will keep Spencer Park restrooms open as late as possible into the month of November.
In addition, lights at all basketball courts will be shut down beginning November 1. Reduced public play and budget controls have made this step necessary for the Parks Department.
