The next Richmond park set to get a new restroom: Southside Park.

The park at 6th Street and Virginia Avenue is set to receive a prefabricated concrete “Ozark I” restroom building from CXT Inc. Precast Products.

In recent years, the city has installed CXT, Inc. restroom buildings at Unity Park, Nicholl Park, Martin Luther King. Jr. Park, Booker T. Anderson Park and Marina Bay Park.

“The restrooms have proven durable and reliable,” according to the city’s Department of Infrastructure, Maintenance and Operations, Parks and Landscaping Division.

Southside Park’s new restroom will cost roughly $95,000. The funds are paid for as part of a $1.7 million California Department of Housing and Community Development Housing-Related Parks Program grant that funded seven park improvement projects in the city.


  1. If people are wondering why public park restrooms are usually so dismal, it’s because of the extreme vandalism that takes place daily. I don’t what it is with the culture of some Americans that they are compelled to destroy anything that is not “theirs”. Public facilities actually ARE theirs, but I don’t think they understand that. Or maybe this is how they treat their own homes? Regardless, this new restroom is a great addition to the Richmond parks.
