Del Valle Regional Park in Livermore, California
The East Bay Regional Parks District contacted Romtec to provide the design, supply, and installation for a new shower and restroom building at Del Valle Regional Park outside of Livermore, California. The Del Valle Lake is a central feature of this park and visitors often swim, fish, or boat at this scenic location. The new building is used by day visitors and campers from over 150 campsites. Visitors have access to 28 miles of trails for hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding. Hikers interested in the Ohlone Regional Wilderness Trail can access the Trail’s eastern entrance in the Del Valle Park. The shower restroom has two multiuser restrooms located at one end and four private shower rooms on the opposite side. An important aspect of this project was to design an attractive building to highlight the beauty of the park. The EBRPD and Romtec used standard and colored CMU blocks in the construction of this building. Tan blocks are placed at the bottom of the building and serve as a pseudo-wainscot, accenting the dark brown doors. These elements combined with the long-lasting, grey metal roofing create an interesting aesthetic that makes the building pleasing to the eye.
