A new playground and pavilion will be in place by April 1 and updated bathrooms will replace those currently in use at Kohler Park in Horsham, officials said.
The Horsham Township Council recently approved ordering the new restrooms, which the township's public works employees will install in September or October, Township Manager Bill Walker said.
Besides being equipped with a four-foot stone veneer on the bottom and a siding look on the upper section of the exterior, Mark Hudson, Horsham's Park and Recreation director said the new facilities will come with another important feature: running water and sewer.
The existing bathrooms have neither of those amenities, he said.
The $300,000 Kohler Park project has been in the works for about two years. from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The Horsham Rotary Club committed in 2011 to raising and contributing $75,000 and Horsham Township chipped in the remaining $80,500.
Because of the state grant, Walker said the township was required to purchase bathrooms "on state contract."
They will be built in Easton and transported to Horsham via tractor trailer, Walker said.
"They drop it in place," Walker said. "We do the work."
