WILLIAMSTOWN, N.J. (FOX 29) - Police are investigating vandalism at a playground in Williamstown, New Jersey.
“I’ve lived in this specific development since I was 12 so I myself played in this very park.” So you can imagine the frustration Jennifer Perez had when she saw pictures of a playground on Ward Lane in Williamstown tagged with graffiti.
Police say it was among multiple park areas that saw the same kind of vandalism. Cops posted pictures of the mess on the Monroe Township Police Department Facebook page.
“It was disappointing because the park had recently been renovated," Perez said. Thanks in part to a Knights of Columbus donation. The playground along with several other parks in the community got updated equipment and an overall facelift only for some of them to get defaced.
Councilman Gregory Wolfe says the local parks and rec crew and just cleaned up this playground before the vandalism happened Friday night.
Pictures of the damage made the rounds on social media before volunteers came over to fix it up.
Now, some neighbors want the Monroe Township council to consider investing in surveillance cameras to keep the vandals away.
