The Tinley Park-Park District has sustained an increased number of vandalism incidents this summer, in particular at Vogt Woods Park located at 6527 W. 171st Street. Multiple areas within the park have been tagged with vulgar, inappropriate graffiti and buildings, playground equipment, tables and benches have been damaged or broken. This vandalism has occurred almost daily throughout the past few weeks. We have been working with the Tinley Park Police Department, but we need your help, too.
The District takes great pride in providing outdoor amenities for residents and visitors, and our staff works hard to maintain the premises. We ask and encourage residents that if they see something unusual happening in the parks system, to please notify the Tinley Park-Park District at 708-342-4200 or the Tinley Park Police Department by calling non-emergency dispatch at 708-532-9111.
Thank you for helping us keep the community’s parks safe, clean and enjoyable for everyone!
