The City of Hamilton has winterized the washroom at Corktown Park in Ward 2 to serve as one of two 24/7 winter washroom locations as part of the encampment response strategy.

The Corktown Park washroom will replace Ward 3’s Myrtle Park on November 15.

“The Myrtle Park washroom building is not winterized and so a new location was required to be identified as the weather gets colder into November,” states the City of Hamilton. “Staff have reviewed the park washrooms across the city and have identified Corktown Park as a new
location for the 24/7 washroom service.”

“The change from Myrtle Park to Corktown Park will be communicated directly to encampment residents,” the City states.

“There are no changes to the J.C. Beemer washroom location, and the shower locations at Eastwood Arena and Norman Pinky Lewis Recreation Centre.”
