Victoria, BC– The Capital Regional District (CRD) is constructing new washroom facilities at Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park.
The new washrooms will be built at the Filter Beds, Beaver Beach and Eagle Beach locations in the park. They will be plumbed with flush toilets and will be fully accessible, with natural lighting through skylights as well as energy efficient LED lighting. Portable toilets will be on site for park visitors during construction at all three locations.
With nearly 1.6 million visitors to the park annually, new washroom facilities are required to meet service demands and minimize impacts to the environment. We ask that visitors use caution around equipment and crews. Visitors can expect noise and dust in these areas during construction.
Construction commences today and is expected to be complete by the end of this year. For more information and to subscribe for updates visit https://www.crd.bc.ca/project/capital-projects/elk-beaver-lake-washroom-facilities.
