Madison Park splash pad vandalized

June 1, 2009

The new splash pad at Madison Park has not even been used yet and already vandals have damaged it.

According to a Wauwatosa Police Department report:

Contractors working on the project for the Milwaukee County Parks Department completed work May 22 on the splash pad, which sprays water so young children can run through it to cool off in the summer heat.

By Tuesday, the water shower portion had been damaged. Contractors suggested people may have been pulling on the equipment or hanging from it.

Damage is estimated at $3,000.

The damage at Madison Park, 9800 W. Glendale Ave., comes on the heels of vandalism at Hoyt Park's poolhouse and Hansen Park's golf clubhouse.
