The Royal Heights Veterans Memorial Park in Estevan is getting washroom facilities. 

"Approximately five weeks ago, the concrete foundation was poured and that had to set," explained Rod March, Estevan's Parks and Facilities Manager. "So all that's done. There are engineered roof trusses for that building that had to be custom ordered. They are on sight right now."

"What you're seeing currently is the walls going up. All of it can be done in today's weather so it's not a big deal."

Once it's closed in, they will be able to put on the roof and weather depending, the structure should be completed this year. 

"There will be two fully accessible washrooms and then a utility room with an overhang gazebo. The structure itself will look almost identical to the one at Padwick Park. You'll have a sunshade there that will face directly to the spray park."

Next spring sewer lines will be run down to Nicholson Road, along with power and the plan is to have everything done in time for the season next year.

"That was always the intent. Try to get the building up now and connect the utilities in the spring because what we're doing is intentionally using the same transportation corridor that the sewer line is going in so there's less disturbance to the park. All the construction including the new play structure will be put in in spring. All of that will be done and then we work our way out doing the sewer and utilities underground."
