Historic Bathroom Restoration at Wright Park

Your tax dollars at work to restore a historical restroom in Wright Park. Wisely spent I might add.
 


These restrooms look to be built with a better architectual design and building materials than most of the buildings constructed in Tacoma (and many other cities) after 1950. A compliment to the original architects and a sad reflection on today's lax and often non existant design standards.

I am looking forward to seeing how the park turns out after the renovations and am certainly apprehensive about how the steam plant will impact the park visually and pollution wise.

Wright Park has stuggled with "unintended" uses in the park with it often being used as a detox center of sorts.  Will the renovations to the park result in an improvement in use after the cyclone fences are all removed?
