Two sets of public washrooms in Penticton are currently closed because of vandalism.
The brand-new washroom next to the outdoor skating rink by city hall, along with the main facility at Skaha Lake Park, were recently hit by vandals and will now undergo repairs.
City staff confirmed in the email with the Western News that all other currently open public washrooms are still available for use, including facilities at the Jubilee Breezeway beside the Peach, Lakawanna Park, Okanagan Lake Park and near the lacrosse box at the east part of Skaha Lake Park.
With two vandalized, there are currently four public washrooms open in Penticton during the winter months.
The washroom by the skating rink was paid for by the city. It opened in February, in conjunction with the unveiling of the new $1.1 million ice sheet that was funded through Activate Penticton.
It is unknown what the extent of the damage was, or when the washrooms will open again.
