Boomerang Park damaged by motorcycle vandals

Damage to the off-leash dog area.

RAYMOND Terrace residents again suffered vandalism incidents over the last long weekend, with motorbikes appearing to be the cause of damage to the Boomerang Park off-leash dog area.

Following previous incidents, barriers were installed to prevent vehicles from entering the park, but unfortunately, these seemingly haven’t deterred motorbike riders from damaging the popular grassed area.

“We are deeply frustrated by this repeated vandalism at Boomerang Park,” a Port Stephens Council spokesperson told News Of The Area.

“The park is a valuable community asset, and this behaviour is disrespectful to all who use it.

“The damage caused by motorbikes is not only costly for Council and ratepayers to repair, but it also significantly impacts park users, including dog owners and their furry companions.

“Raymond Terrace Police Station has been notified, and we urge anyone who witnessed the vandalism to come forward with information.

“You can contact the station directly at 4983 7599.

“Unfortunately due to recent weather conditions, repairs cannot be undertaken until the park dries out completely and the full extent of the damage is assessed.

“As a result, the park will remain closed until further notice.

“We apologise for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.”
