Dote said there is at least $7,500 worth of damage to the playground equipment, picnic tables, and trash cans. In terms of insurance, he said it may be considered a total loss.

Dote said picnic tables seats were found smashed, holes were burned into some of the playground equipment, and trash cans, which were attached to the ground, were toppled over.

The playground is currently closed, and Dote said it will likely remain closed through the summer.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Department is investigating the incident. Dote said whoever is found responsible for the damage will face felony charges.

Dote is urging any one with information about the vandalism to call him 315-723-9394, or the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office at 315-736-8364.
