Multiple sports fields in both the city and county have been vandalized by a large vehicle driving through and around them.

In Windsor, the fields at Mic Mac Park were vandalized over the past weekend as reported by the Windsor Minor Football Association.

Tecumseh’s McAuliffe Park off Lesperance Road was also hit as was fields in Lakeshore, Essex and Amherstburg.

“My feelings go beyond disappointment,” said Gary McNamara, Mayor of Tecumseh. “I am angry with the total lack of regard for quality public spaces. The damage was done not just to one park, but four of them throughout Essex County. Taxpayers in all of our municipalities should share my outrage as they will have to pay the price for this foolish act of one or more individuals whose sense of entitlement extends to the use of public parks as their personal off-road facilities. We are asking for the public’s help in identifying who may have done this. Someone knows something and they need to come forward.”

Anyone with information on any of the park incidents is asked to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or the Windsor Police at 519-258-6111 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
