100 Mile House Spray Park closed indefinitely due to vandalism

The District of 100 Mile House announced the closure of the Spray Park, after the controls were vandalized.

The water system control panel was damaged, which seemed to have been caused by a sharp and flat object, such as a knife, key or screwdriver.

Mayor Maureen Pinkney says that the vandalism being caused in the area is nothing new.

“We’ve had our share of vandalism in the park, and every time the RCMP are brought in, in case they can start linking these things together.” says Pinkney.

“We did just have a bunch more spray painting, and carvings and stuff done on the beautiful log stage we have down there, so they were in on that as well.”

Pinkney added that last year, the total cost to repair the vandalism in the area was over $30,000, which she says is quite costly.

Now, she says the District will look into improving security in the area, whether that’s through security cameras or guards.

As for when the park will reopen, Pinkney says it all depends on when they can replace they parts needed, which there’s currently a lack of availability.

She says if anyone has photos or videos of vandalism at the park, to send them over to the District of 100 Mile House.
