ISAAC Regional Council is asking the community to keep an eye out for vandals targeting Binda Park and report it to Police.

Councillor Kelly Vea Vea said that there have been at least three recent incidents of vandalism to the park.

"Vandals have ripped out light switches, broken power points, smashed skylights and damaged turf on the oval,” she said.

"Council were forced to close the park's male toilet as exposed wires pose a serious threat to families that use the park.

"It's disappointing to see such thoughtless acts take place, especially after this park received some exciting upgrades late last year.

"Vandalism costs ratepayers unnecessarily and that money could be better spent on improving community facilities.

"I encourage community members to report any activity such as vandalism, damage or trespassing by calling Policelink on 131 444.

"By doing this you will help save unnecessary costs for our community.”
