As part of the construction of Potomac Yard Park, Potomac Yard Development LLC will rebuild the restroom and storage building at Simpson Park, 426 E Monroe Avenue. PYD’s General Contractor, KT Enterprises, will demolish the existing building in January. The new building will be the same footprint and location as the existing building. At completion, the new facility will provide the public with modern restroom facilities as well as additional space for city maintenance crews.
During construction, Potomac Yard Development and the Department of Recreation Parks and Cultural Activities will be providing temporary facilities for restrooms to the park users. There will be a construction staging area in the gravel lot immediately north of the existing building. During construction, the dog park and the fields will remain open as scheduled and access will be maintained to the Simpson facilities.
