Vandalism Rampant in Maui County Parks
Parks officials across Hawaii, especially in Maui County, are pleading with vandals to cease the destruction of public parks facilities. Maui County Parks Director, Pat McCall, revealed that he receives daily reports of vandalism in the county's park system. The damages have been extensive, from torched portable toilets at Kanaha Beach Park to shattered toilets at Keokea Park and even a burned field at Maui High School Park. The continuous vandalism has cost Maui tens of thousands of dollars in repairs alone. McCall emphasized the broader impact, stating that such acts ruin the park experience for others. The community is urged to report any suspicious activities, and anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to call 911.
