27 January: Vandalism delays opening of Adventure Park  Printer Friendly

Vandalism to the Adventure Park in the Benalla Botanical Gardens has delayed the opening of the new facility.



Damage has been done to the paths, edging and possibly the underground drainage and irrigation systems.



People climbed the security fence and used equipment that was on-site to create the damage.



Early estimates indicate the cost to repair the damage could be many thousands of dollars and take a number of weeks.



Mayor, Cr Don Firth, said that acts of vandalism are disappointing. “The Adventure Park will be a big asset to Benalla and we are all looking forward to it opening.



“It is extremely disappointing that the behaviour of a few people will have such a significant impact on the whole community,” said Cr Firth.



The matter is being investigated by the Benalla Police.



Anyone who witness vandalism should contact the police. To report damaged Council infrastructure, contact the Council at council@benalla.vic.gov.auor call the Council’s Customer Service Centre on 03 5760 2600.
