While 2020 may not be everyone’s favourite year, things are looking up for an RV park south of Edmonton.
The washroom at Westview RV Park in Wetaskiwin, Alta., has been named Canada’s Best Restroom for 2020. The title was awarded to the RV park by Cintas Canada on Wednesday morning.
“It’s pretty huge for our family and for our company,” co-owner Darlene Crick said.
The washrooms are more than one might expect at an RV park, complete with floor-to-ceiling porcelain tile, custom concrete countertops and epoxy floors.
“We wanted something that would stand up to the wear and tear of everyday use. And we wanted something easy to clean and comfort for our guests,” Crick said.
The Westview RV Park came into new ownership in 2019. Earlier this year, Crick said redoing the washrooms was one of the first renovation projects on the list when they bought the property.
“We’re pleased to offer campers a really clean, nice washroom facility,” Crick said following their nomination for the best restroom title.
“They continually tell us how blown away they are by the nice washrooms. As they’re checking in, some say they don’t use campground washrooms and we tell them to go in and have a peek at ours and they come back and tell us they’re amazed.”
The RV park was one of five finalists vying for the throne.
The finalists were selected earlier this year based on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. The title of Canada’s Best Restroom comes with $2,500 in Cintas products and services.
Last year, the washrooms at Beaverhill Shell in Lac La Biche, Alta., won the competition.
