Help Prevent Vandalism in Community Park

Help Prevent Vandalism in Community Park

Your community park should be a place in which you and everyone in your neighborhood feel a sense of security. Help prevent vandalism in your community park. 

A community park is a wonderful addition to the neighborhood. It can help raise property values, offer a safe place for families to gather to enjoy the beautiful day, and offer a fun place for children to play. Unfortunately, parks are a prime target for vandals once the sun sets. They can single-handedly ruin the park for the community. Here are a few ways you can protect your community park from vandalism.

Security Cameras

You can install cameras throughout the park and monitor them from another secondary location. If you don’t feel like monitoring your cameras 24/7, you can always just check the feed the following day. According to a study by the Urban Institute, crime can drop 20 percent when security cameras are installed.

Sturdy and Lockable Gates

Vandals will often cloak themselves under the cover of night, so it makes sense to limit the access of the park after dark. By installing fencing, you can lower the chances of vandalism. There are many designs which can deter even the most determined of criminal to keep your community park safe.

Make Your Park More Inviting

You want to make sure that your park is inviting to the entire community. The more people that frequent the park, the less inclined these vandals will become. New and colorful equipment or using available land for a community garden can make the park more inviting than ever before.
