Sandybrook Park, Cwmbran, is the latest park to be vandalised in the borough.
This park has been subject to repeated incidents of vandalism, and the latest has resulted in the playground surface being damaged and a bin set on fire.
Unfortunately, this means that we have had to close the park due to safety reasons until the damage can be repaired.
Councillor Mandy Owen, Executive member for the environment, said: "I am saddened to hear about yet another act of vandalism taking place in one of our parks.
"Parks are very popular with children of all ages, and damage such as this has taken away this facility until repairs can be made. It’s a shame that a few irresponsible people have spoilt the fun for many.
"Sadly, this park will be out of action for a while until repairs can be made. We are urging anyone that if you know anything about this mindless vandalism to get in touch with the council or the Police"
If you have any information about the vandalism please phone the Council 01495 762200 or contact Heddlu Gwent Police.
