Washroom Replacement Project

The City is planning to replace the St. George’s Park washroom building during the off-season in 2013. The City will close the doors to the aging facility after Labour Day and reopen a new facility for the 2014 park season. The new washroom will include the addition of an individual barrier free washroom.

Public participation

A public open house was held on:

Tuesday, April 23
2–4 p.m., City Hall Meeting Room C
7–9 p.m., City Hall Galleria
1 Carden Street, Guelph

During the open house community members had an opportunity to view drawings showing proposed elevations and two different options for the new washroom building. Members of the project team were available to answer questions about the project, and the City collected comments and feedback on the proposed drawings and plans.

Community members also had an opportunity to participate in an online survey from April 17 to May 9, 2013.

Community feedback from the open house and online survey was used to determine the preferred option and layout for the washroom.

Final option

Option 1 was selected as the final design for the washroom facility to be constructed in St. George’s Park. This option was chosen based on community feedback received as part of the public open house and online survey.


This project will include the demolition of the existing washroom facility, and the construction of new facility with separate male and female washrooms, as well as an accessible washroom. Construction work began on September 30, 2013.

The new washroom facility is now open. Staff are currently working with the contractor to fix up deficiencies pertaining to the tennis court lighting. The tennis courts will remain open during construction; however the lighting will not be operational. Access to the tennis court will be available from the gate opposite the washroom building.

The driveway into St. George’s Park will be closed to the public to permit access for trucks and construction equipment. On street parking is available around the park on Grange Street (south side), Palmer Street (south side) and Stuart Street (west side).

The City of Guelph appreciates your patience, understanding and co-operation during this important construction project.
