Tina Petroff, Waterlily Playscape C’tee

Just days before Christmas four teenagers caused late-night havoc in Waterlily Park. They smashed lights, trashed the new barbecue shelter, and destroyed the large concrete planters. Many people heard the horrendous noise that they made but nobody called the police.

Soon afterwards local residents managed to foil their attempt to steal a car from a nearby street. Unfortunately, however, their trail of destruction continued as they pulled out signs and destroyed a green on the Ocean Shores Golf Course.

Police officers said that if residents had alerted them to the chaotic activity in the park they may have been able to save the Golf Course from being damaged.

We implore the community to be vigilant. Waterlily Park is a ‘No Alcohol’ zone so please assist in preserving its peace and tranquillity by reporting alcohol and drug use in the park. If anyone observes or hears inappropriate behaviour in the park, including property being damaged, please immediately report the incident on the Police Assistance Line  – 131 444.

A big thankyou to the local kids, Gerard from Byron Shire Coucil, Andrew from Curtis Electrical, and Ryan from the mowing crew for helping to promptly clean up the chaos created by the recent vandalism. You all did a fantastic job!
