BREC skate park closed due to graffiti
BATON ROUGE - BREC said Monday they are closing the skating portion of their extreme sports park on Perkins Road until graffiti left over the weekend is cleaned up.
According to the park's Facebook page someone sprayed the word "chap" at the park over the weekend. BREC said they've been able to keep the area clean for five years now.
BREC said on Facebook that "Thanks to "chap", the park will be closed until it has been removed by either the culprit or anyone else proud enough to call this park home."
People commenting on the Facebook page said they saw the person spraying graffiti Sunday afternoon. When confronted, the person got into a car and drove away.
BREC said before the rain moved in Monday a volunteer came by to begin cleaning up the graffiti, but the bad weather forced them to stop. BREC said they have cleaning materials on site, but people who want to help need to check in at the park office.
The park has skate ramps, a climbing wall, ball fields, walking or jogging trails, a BMX trail and a velodrome for cycling.
