Taggers And Graffiti Trash Fresno Park

Posted:
FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KMPH) -

A popular get-a-way spot is hit by taggers.

Now the hunt is on to find the people who destroyed Lost Lake Park.

The park just off Friant Road just below Friant Dam in Fresno County was covered with graffiti.

Our cameras captured video that shows rocks and even trees covered in spray paint.

John Thompson, Resources Manager for Fresno County Department of Public Works and Planning says he's well aware of the mess. He says Fresno County Sheriff's deputies took pictures already and are investigating.

He says the park is typically cleaned up on a quarterly basis, but now his skeleton crew will have to put in some extra work.

Park visitor Rachel Kirkorian has a message for the taggers

Kirkorian says, "Go find somewhere like a mural to do this, where it's allowed. Go somewhere else, where it's not going to be affecting nature. I'm not out here to look at spray paint."

Help is on the way.

Thompson says the first week in April, some 400 members and friends of the East Fresno Kiwanis Club plan to spend a Saturday cleaning up the park.

But more community outreach is needed.

Any organization can give Fresno County a call at (559) 600-3004.

Thompson says the county would gladly accept any help.
