PLAINFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — Plainfield police are trying to find whoever is responsible for vandalizing a playground designed for children with special needs.

A “sensory hut” at Lions Park was vandalized. Knobs and handles that are there to help kids with tactile skills were damaged as well as the sticks used for the xylophone and cymbal set outside of the hut. The playground also had offensive graffiti written on it.

“It’s kind of disheartening. Some of the tactile things have been destroyed that the children really need to practice and even their age all kids even special needs. So it’s very sad,” said Barbara Carpenter.

Plainfield police are asking for tips to help them find out who is responsible.
