Albany’s new Youth Challenge Park has been vandalised overnight after only officially opening last Friday. 

A roller door from a storage shed has been kicked in and broken during what the City of Albany understands as an “intentional act of aggression”.

“Facilities like Youth Challenge Park are there for all residents and visitors to our beautiful City to enjoy and deliberate destruction like this is very disappointing and will not be tolerated,” the City said in a statement. 

“Intentional vandalism like this is so disrespectful to our community members and ratepayers that help fund and benefit from these assets.”

Community members are encouraged to report any vandalism to the City through their Report It Function on their website.
