Vandals wreck viewpoint
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.
