Van­dals wreck viewpoint

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Van­dals have dam­aged the Paekakariki Hill look­out area just two months af­ter it was up­graded.

A macro­carpa seat/bar­rier at the look­out was torn out re­cently, leav­ing noth­ing but screws.

Kapiti Coast Dis­trict Coun­cil leisure and open space as­sets man­ager Lex Bartlett urged any­one with in­for­ma­tion to call the po­lice.

“It’s very dis­ap­point­ing, af­ter all the hard work to cre­ate such a lovely area for peo­ple to en­joy the view from, that these van­dals could’ve done some­thing so sense­less.’’

The look­out area was up­graded in July with new fenc­ing, gar­dens and wooden pic­nic fur­ni­ture. Lo­cal com­pa­nies were in­volved in the im­prove­ments.
