Long Description:
NRHP Nomination Form

"Two almost identical rectangular structures, thought to have been designed by Will Noonan, were built under the administration of Ray Lambert to house bathrooms. The first, originally a men's restroom, is now used for storage; it is located on the left side of the service road between the old acequia channel and water works channel. The second, originally a women's restroom, has been remodeled to serve both men and women; it is located on the right side of the main park road. Both are constructed of stone rubble and feature hipped roofs with projecting eaves and a central louvered ventilation pavilion that rises above the roof level. The first is roofed in red asphalt shingles and the second is roofed in flat red tile. Both likely were roofed in green barrel ceramic tile, originally. These two buildings exhibit the same design motifs as two other bathroom structures in the south part of the park."
