Newtown Township Park Restrooms To Be Re-Opened

Newtown Township Park Restrooms To Be Re-Opened | Newtown News of Interest |

The restrooms in Newtown Township parks, including: 


  1. Chandler Fields
  2. Veteran's Park
  3. Robert's Ridge Park
  4. Helen Randle Park

have been closed since the spring of 2020. This was due to the risk of contamination from COVID-19 and lack of staffing to thoroughly clean them. Porta potties were installed starting in September 2020 due to complaints from residents about lack of toilet facilities in the parks (read “Persistent Resident Complaints Lead to Newtown Township Installing Portable Restrooms in its Parks”).


Good news! At the May 26, 2021, Board of Supervisors meeting, Supervisors approved a contract with BCS Facilities Group in the amount of $1,213.00/month for service of restrooms. Each restroom will be cleaned two times per week - at the beginning of the week and at the end before the weekend.
