Play equipment at Glansychan Park, Abersychan, has been vandalised.
A basket swing has been burnt which has also damaged the flooring beneath.
Unfortunately, this means that we have had to close part of the park for safety reasons until the damage can be repaired. The estimated cost for repair is £3K.
A council spokesperson, said: “It’s always sad to hear that play equipment has been damaged as it means a lot of children won’t be able to enjoy the park like they usually do, especially during the Easter holidays.
"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.
