Crystal Brown

Police are looking for leads after Love Street Park was vandalized Wednesday morning.

Weatherford Police were dispatched around 11 a.m. Wednesday on a vandalism call and spoke with a city employee who reported the damage, which included two three-foot barrier posts and two handicap signs that had been pushed or pulled sideways removing the retaining bolts from the concrete, a drip irrigation hose pulled from a park flower bed and punched or kicked holes into three sheets of siding wallboard in both the men’s and women’s bathrooms.

The sink in the men’s bathroom had also been pulled away from the wall and the lower portion broken. The paper towel dispenser was taken from the women’s bathroom. The estimated cost of the damage is $750.

“We are very discouraged that someone would damage a place that was designed to benefit the families of Weatherford,” Detective Lannie Fulton said. “We are hoping that someone will step forward with information about this crime so the city can move on to the task of repairing the damage so that everyone can enjoy the park once again.”

Anyone with information on the recent damage is asked to contact the Weatherford Police Department at (817) 598-4345 or Parker County Crimestoppers at (817) 599-5555 and remain anonymous.
