Comfort Station

Cumberland Bay State Park - Plattsburgh, NY

Under a continuing design service contract with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation, Beardsley provided full architectural/engineering, landscape architecture and construction phase services for this comprehensive redevelopment project.

The project included demolition of a number of existing bathhouse facilities within the park and construction of two new facilities and related site improvements. A new 1,500 SF comfort station consisting of 6 individual/private bathrooms provides services to a portion of the campground patrons. A separate 3,700 SF beach bathhouse structure serves the swimming beach, day use area and a portion of the campground and includes modern toilet and shower facilities, laundry room, storage, lifeguard station, first aid room and interior mechanical chases to allow for seasonal drainage and maintenance.

Both buildings include stone and wood siding materials, timber frame roof systems and other elements that relate to the historic architectural fabric of the area. Site improvements included utility upgrades, extensive outdoor hardscape and sidewalk areas, ADA accessible parking upgrades, shower towers, drinking fountains and expansion to an existing playground to include new play pieces for both children and adults.
