  • During inspections April 29, Rolla Parks and Recreation maintenance staff found two playground components damaged by what they believe to be vandalism at Schuman Park.
    Park staff repaired railing and a slide on the playground, according to Rolla Parks and Recreation Director Scott Caron, but he noted that parts are no longer available and any future damage will result in the removal of these play components.
    Parents and park users can assist the parks department in identifying issues and checking for signs of vandalism.
    Prior to allowing children to use a playground, they should look for the following:
    • There should be no missing, broken or worn-out components,
    • All hardware should be secure,
    • The wood, metal or plastic should not show signs of fatigue or deterioration,
    • All parts should be stable with no apparent signs of loosening, and
    • Surfacing material must be maintained.
    For more information, contact the Rolla Parks and Recreation Department at 573-341-2386.
