Following criminal damage to the play park at Sally Gardens Community centre, local police have been made aware that the park has been closed to the public to facilitate the necessary repairs.
The protective polymeric coating/safety surface on the ground was damaged on Sunday April 27. Graffiti was also sprayed on some of the equipment and a bin was set on fire.
Local PSNI Inspector Peter Brannigan says this wanton destruction of property is impacting on the local community and has to stop, “Because of the actions of those involved in this incident people here in this part of Poleglass are being denied access to a valuable community resource.”
He added: “I am asking parents to talk to your children about the possible consequences of getting involved in any kind of criminal or nuisance activity and the impact any kind of criminal record could have on their future.”
Anyone with any information about the recent criminal damage and anti-social behaviour in the Sally Gardens area of Poleglass can contact police by calling the non-emergency number 101.”
