Winter Weather Won’t Stop Vandalism

Proper winterization helps prevent equipment and plumbing damages, and ensures a smooth startup in spring.

Due to winterization, areas of the park may close with access restricted. However, for vandals it’s still open season for illegal, destructive activity. Nuisance crimes or other unwanted activity may even increase as winter weather lowers the number of regular park users, giving vandals more privacy and a haven for trespassing, vandalism, graffiti and other unwanted behavior.

Facilities are vulnerable to thousands of dollars in vandalism or graffiti damages. As part of your park asset management and vandalism prevention program, ensure your park is protected all year round. Taking proactive measures, such as incorporating crime prevention security systems to deter nuisance crime, saves money and preserves parks for the community’s recreation and continuous enjoyment.
