Sandybrook Park, Cwmbran, which is currently closed due to vandalism, has been the victim to even more vandalism.
This time a basket swing was set on fire, resulting in the basket swing and ground underneath it being burnt.
Councillor Mandy Owen, Executive member for the environment, said: "We are working with partners to discuss a strategy to prevent vandalism in the future, and we really hope this is the last instance in this park. This is time that could be focused elsewhere if these deliberate acts were not taking place.
“There are so many children who are now missing out on having fun in the fresh air due to this park being closed, we hope that these deliberate acts do not continue.”
If you have any information about the vandalism please phone the Council 01495 762200 or contact Heddlu Gwent Police.
