Excercise equipment sawn in half at popular Craigavon City Park

Craigavon park vandalism

Exercise equipment in the popular Craigavon City Park was mindlessly vandalised overnight on Saturday.

The wooden equipment appears to have been sawed, completely destroying the structures.

SDLP councillor Thomas Larkham has hit out at those behind the criminal act, branding it “an absolutely disgusting and mindless act of vandalism”.

“Why anyone would go to these lengths is beyond me,” he said.

“I have reported this to Council for repairs – if possible – and will be asking for any CCTV in the nearby building site to be reviewed to try and identify those responsible.

“I will also be informing the PSNI to keep an eye on this area. This vandalism was not caused by hand and to potentially have people with dangerous weapons in a public place – a park, is wholly unacceptable.

“Craigavon City Park and Lakes is a very popular leisure facility used daily by hundreds of people from the Craigavon and surrounding areas.

“Actions such as this only reduces the amount of facilities available to those who use the park.”
