The water main for the washrooms at Cadboro-Gyro Park broke Monday afternoon, causing them to close for maintenance. Saanich Parks and Recreation representative, Kelsie McLeod, said the district is bringing in porta-potties as a temporary fix.

“The parks team is repairing the broken water main now,” McLeod said. Saanich Parks and Recreation doesn’t expect the repair to take longer than a few days.

For updates on the toilet situation at Cadboro-Gyro Park, Saanich Parks and Recreation suggests keeping an eye on their Twitter account.
