ECD inquires about bathroom availability for children

Bathroom close to playground available at Pas Ka Poo Park

Rimbey town council is looking into a concern voiced by the Early Child Development Coalition regarding bathroom access for playground users.

“It was brought to the ECD that parents would really appreciate the use of bathroom facilities at any one of the parks/playgrounds in town for their little ones,” said ECDLeanne Evans in an email to Mayor Rick Pankiw. “Taking children to the park/playground in the summer is an activity that most families enjoy but find difficult sometimes when their children are young or are being potty trained.”

Evans said the ECD Coalition would be interested in partnering with the town to bring this service to the families of Rimbey.

Cheryl Jones, administrator at Pas Ka Poo Park said there are bathroom facilities at the park located in the green building south of the playground. The bathroom is available until the park closes at around 9 p.m.

Other bathrooms are available in the park while events are occuring and there is a bathroom in the truck museum as well.
