The municipal park ‘Piraeus’ in Larnaca has been targetted by vandals just months after an arson attack on the children’s play area.
“Once again a municipal park fell ‘victim’ to malicious actions by some of our reckless fellow citizens, who do not appreciate the efforts made by the municipality to improve key road arteries and other locations of the city in appropriate entertainment spots and in green areas,” Larnaca municipality said in a written announcement.
According to the statement, repairs on the park began on May 6, 2022 after vandals set fire to the children’s games area in the park located on Dafnidos Street, and noted that such actions create feelings of anger and indignation, since each initiative paid either by the municipality or by individuals, small or large scale, “is a step forward and modernisation”.
“On Wednesday, September 7, while repair works were being carried out in this park due to the fire, unknown people wrote slogans of insulting content destroying part of the works. For the umpteenth time, the municipality of Larnaca appeals to everyone to respect the property of the municipality, which is also the property of the citizens. Its destruction, by any means and in any way, offends the ethos and level of the culture of our city,” Larnaca municipality said.
“Larnaca municipality also expresses its wish that such malicious actions will never be repeated again and that at last some will begin to appreciate the city and our fellow citizens”.
The incident is being investigated by the police.
