Parks department doing what they can to keep restrooms clean
Kekai Coleman visited the park for the first time on Monday with his 2-year-old son Kaden and was shocked to hear what had been found in the restrooms.
“That disturbs me, I had no clue I was oblivious,” Coleman said.
“I hope they fix it, I hope someone can do something about it,” Coleman added.
Herzog stated trashed restrooms are common all over the city, but it’s the needles that are troubling.
“It’s unacceptable. You got these syringes out there that have been used for heaven knows what… they are laying on the ground and children will pick them up. Inquisitive children will pick them up and play with them,” Herzog noted.
He has never heard of a child getting poked by a needle, but said a fellow worker was and had to go through testing to make sure they did not get anything.
(…)Herzog noted if there are syringes in restrooms to call park maintenance at 530-224 -6100.
