Park Board statement on vandalism at McDaniel Park


SPRINGFIELD, MO – The Springfield-Greene County Park Board and Ozark Greenways repudiate the act of vandalism that took place at McDaniel Park this morning.

 Director of Parks Bob Belote said the incident was appalling and unacceptable.

 "There is absolutely no place for hate or derision in our public parks or on our trails," said Belote. "Our parks and trails bring people together. They offer hope. And they should be places where all of us feel safe. An important part of that safety is our own park patrons and neighbors keeping an eye out for each other, like another helpful trail user did at McDaniel Park today. If you see a crime in a park or feel unsafe, please call 911."
