New public washroom at Point Holmes

The Point Holmes Recreation Association has opened a new public washroom at the boat ramp location on Lazo Road in Comox.  The structure was built by PHRA volunteers and was mostly funded by donations from local businesses and individuals including Dr. Kevin Jackson of Comox Dental Care, Mike Emerson of Royal LePage, Richard and Lyn Glazier, Doug Taylor and Lori Elder’s music students.  The Town of Comox provided the concrete for the building’s foundation, and will also be covering the maintenance costs of the Porta Potty.

This new facility is just one of the improvements planned for the Point Holmes waterfront in preparation for the upcoming 50th anniversary of the PHRA in 2017.

Other planned improvements include a new picnic pavilion, better walking and sitting areas separated from the parking lots, and a boat ramp webcam broadcasting on our webpage.
