Vandals targeted the new playground in Allora

THE new playground at Stuart Henry Park in Allora has not even opened, yet it has already been vandalised.

The playground has been a closed off worksite while Southern Downs Regional Council workers removed the old play gear and replaced it with a modern play ground that meets current Australian standards.

Last week someone has entered the work area and vandalised the new birds nest swing by cutting the swing's ropes. 

"It is disappointing that there is a destructive few who seek to spoil what will be a great new asset for the rest of the community," said Peter See, engineering director.

"We have had to take the swing down and order chains instead of the rope style swing supports to support the basket," Mr See explained.

"We've also had people ignoring signage and entering the closed zone where we are installing the new playground for Chase Estate Park in Warwick," he said.  "Apart from the danger of entering a construction site without authorisation, turf has recently been laid and needs the chance to take root without being walked on.

"We're asking Allora and Warwick residents to keep an eye out for anything untoward happening in these new playground areas and to contact Council or the Police if they notice suspicious behaviour."

Both Stuart Henry Park and Chase Estate Park have had soft fall and turf installed and are due to be opened on Wednesday 21 March 2012.

Installation of new play gear at Killarney's Canning Park will start on Tuesday.
