Vandals taking aim at Roswell skate park


ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) – Vandals have struck again at the Roswell Skate Park.

New benches at the park have been torn apart and the porta-potties trashed.

The Parks and Rec Department says it has done a lot of work to fix up the park in recent months and it’s a shame people keep treating it this way.

“Please don’t destroy it, take care of it. We have limited budgets and personnel and we do have to react to anything we deem is unsafe,” said Jim Burris, Parks and Grounds Manager.

Parks and Rec says it will be removing the benches from the park.
