The kids’ play area in Farnley Park remains closed today – more than a week since vandals set fire to and destroyed a piece of play equipment.

The Dispatch understands the council is hoping to repair the damage and reopen the park this week.

Closed: Vandalism at Farnley Park playground.

One local resident, who asked not to be named, told The Dispatch:

“It’s disgusting – anti-social behaviour is becoming a big problem in Farnley, you can’t have anything. I think there should be a meeting with the council and the police at the community centre. We should invite everyone to discuss how we can all tackle the anti-social behaviour.”
