Ferndale Police investigate ‘tagging’ at local parks

FERNDALE, Wash. — Ferndale Police are investigating 2 city park locations that were ‘tagged’ over the weekend according to a City of Ferndale announcement today.

Star Park by Pioneer Park and Cedar Creek Park on Apollo Drive were both vandalized with graffiti often referred to as tagging. Fortunately, according to the announcement, a City Public Works crew was able to remove the damage. According to city staff, that required about 12 hours effort.

According to today’s announcement from the City:

We are a small town and it is likely that whomever did this is local. Please talk to your children, neighbors and friends about how important Star Park is to our city – you never know whose mind you might change.

The tagging was thought to be the work of the same individual or individuals given the similarity of the tag designs. No Cedar Creek Park structures were vandalized but some trees were according to City staff.

Anyone with information regarding these property crimes is asked to contact Ferndale Police Officer Steven Gamage by calling 360-384-3390 ext. 5864 or by emailing sgamage@ferndalepd.org.
