Vandalism on the Greenbelt

I saw this on the Owens trail passing through the Yale Park neighborhood. Looks like somebody had some fun doing some doughnuts on the greenbelt around the trail. It’s sad to see when public space, used to make our city better, gets vandalized like this. I hope nobody was riding or walking on this trail when this happened.

On a side note, I saw about 8 piles of dog crap between my bike and where I shot this. If you walk your dogs along the trail, please pick up after them and keep this space nice for everybody.

    I hear you. Last night I was in the backyard grilling when I heard someone peeling out for about 30-45 seconds. They couldn’t have been more than a block away, which would have put them in front of the elementary school.

    RPD does a fantastic job, but idiots still get away with stuff like this.

    I agree this stinks. Has anyone told the city? $10 of Bermuda grass seed should take care of this ok if reseeded at the right time…

    It’s not the cost of seed. What if someone had been using the trail at the time?I’ve seen plenty of runners out there in the dark, into their run I’m sure thinking that on the MUP that they are safe from things like this.

    What are the last words of a redneck? “Hey – watch this!”. hahaha. I take comfort in knowing that retarded users of motorized vehicles like this stand a good chance of killing or maiming themselves.

    Actually, maybe putting more dog poop in the greenbelt would solve that problem!
