Mildred Kanipe Memorial Park – Oakland, OR
Mildred Kanipe Memorial Park in Oakland, Oregon required two new vault restrooms for a new campground. The 1,100-acre park was originally established in 1983 when Mildred Kanipe left it to Douglas County. This park contains a variety of ecosystems and supports a rich diversity of plant and wildlife. Visitors can enjoy birdwatching while using any of the many hiking and equestrian trails. In recent years, the Friends of Mildred Kanipe Memorial Park, the group that manages the park, have developed 20 campsites. Additionally, the park also started to host an annual 5k/9k race. Historic structures dating back to the original settlement are still standing at the park today. The new Romtec SST Traditional restrooms were installed near the newly developed campgrounds. This project was located very close to home for Romtec, and having a chance to design and supply restrooms for a park in our local community was a great opportunity for Romtec.
