Herriman skate park closed indefinitely due to vandalism


Herriman City

HERRIMAN, Utah (ABC4 News) – Herriman City officials have closed their skate park due to excessive vandalism, authorities announced Wednesday.

Officials showed a video of the vandalism and said there is a lot of trash, blood, and feces being spread around the skate park, and smeared on the walls of the park bathrooms.

Officials have closed the facilities until further notice.

Herriman City said they do have security cameras at the skate park, but not in the bathrooms.

“By policy, in order for the camera footage to be viewed, we need to file a police report,” said the post. “In the past, we have chosen not to pursue this course of action but due to repeat offenses, for the second week in a row, we will be filing a police report to see if the cameras can assist us in determining who may be doing this.”

Anyone with any information about the vandalism is asked to call the city at 801-446-5323 or Herriman Police Department 801-858-0035.
