Restroom Projects 

The City of Palo Alto is currently installing new restrooms at a number of locations in Palo Alto recreation facilities. These recreation facilities were chosen due to the high volume of use by the community and the high-quality facilities that require a restroom facility for prolonged use.  A capital improvement project was established in 2017 that provides funding every other year for new restroom facilities. 

The new restroom facilities will be installed at the following locations.

Current Projects

Rinconada Park

The new Rinconada Park Restroom will be located adjacent to the newly remodeled playground at the park. The restroom will service the full park, but will provide closer facilities to the playground and group picnic areas that exist at that end of the park. The current restroom located centrally in the park will also be replaced as part of Phase 2 of the Rinconada long range renovation plan, which is anticipated to occur in 2025.

Installation Schedule: Spring 2024 

Cubberley Community Play Fields and Track

The Cubberley Field Restroom Project proposes to install a new prefabricated restroom building at the play fields. The restroom is a much-needed facility for the heavily used fields as there are currently only two portable restrooms available onsite.

Refer to the community outreach, survey and Parks and Recreation Commission meeting presentations below.  

Community Engagement

Installation Schedule: Summer 2024 

Ramos Park 

Ramos Park with it’s large group picnic area, playground, and large open turf area provides several community options for outdoor recreation.  A new Restroom is being added to Ramos Park to support the facilities of the park. 

Per input received from the community meeting, revisions have been made to the overall restroom plan and layout.  The below Exhibit shows these revisions.
