Lock affixed to the port-a-potty at Heyer-Bayer Memorial park
Don’t expect a public restroom here
So after the wet slide fiasco, my daughter (probably through some stimulus-response) had to go potty. Upon crossing the immense field separating the playground from the port-a-potty, we came across this huge lock on the restroom. Of course I was more than a little upset that we’d just walked all that way to find a locked john. After a few minutes of rational thought, I have to conclude that this port-a-potty is probably available only when baseball games are being played.
In addition to the lack of a public restroom, this park is noticeably missing a one of the core requirements for even being a park: an eating area! There were no picnic tables and no charcoal barbecues. Unfortunately, this means that when ranking parks, Heyer-Bayer Memorial Park is going to take a big penalty. I am going to flag this park for another update in six months to find out if Irondequoit has brought an eating area into this park.
