The facility has two handicap accessible restrooms complete with diaper changing stations, and a bench and hooks for trail users looking to change into or out of clothes. On the exterior it also features a bike repair stand, complete with tools and air pump, and a water bottle filling station and drinking fountain. The facility will be open three seasons and re-open when freezing temperatures no longer threaten water lines. Middlebury Parks Department plans to close the restroom on November 1st to winterize.
