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.  ALL drinking fountains and restrooms with a lower priority have already been closed. On October 31st, Riverside, Spencer, and Huston Parks restrooms will be closed for the season.


The process of shutting water off for the winter and clearing water from the pipes is very labor intensive, with other major projects going on.  Without these measures, water freezes and expands inside the pipes, breaking the pipes and creating expensive repairs. 


In addition, lights at all basketball courts will be shut down once the warm weather has finished.  Reduced public play and budget controls have made this step necessary for the Parks Department.
