“What’s on our mind? The worst vandalism I’ve ever seen in my 28 years of doing Parks & Recreation. This was the done at the Riverside restrooms on Friday night, both Men’s & Women’s sides. I don’t know who is so angry that they could do this, but it’s made me heartsick and sick to my stomach.”

As the parks are opening with new activities and places for the citizens to take their families, acts like this can not and will not be tolerated.

The City of Logansport and the Logansport Police Department are working hard to provide a safe place for all citizens. If you have any information pertaining to the incident that has occurred at River Side Park please contact the Logansport Police Department at (574) 722-6060.
