Vandals rip through heart of Lions

EMERALD’S Lions Park has yet again been the target of late night vandals, who ripped shadecloth and destroyed public property at the heavily used playground during the course of last Thursday night.

A group of Emerald mothers were the first to discover the destruction that littered the playground last Friday, when they arrived with their children early in the morning to spot the usually elevated shade structures ripped from their support beams and sagging over play equipment.

Lions Park chairman Ian Cornish said vandalism at the park was a regular occurrence.

He said it was high time action was taken to combat the crimes, and suggested the installation of CCTV cameras to patrol the wider area.

The Central Highlands Regional Council is in the process of upgrading the shade structures at the park.
