A state-of-the art new £90,000 play park that was officially opened on the weekend has already been vandalised.
North Walsham Play's (NWP) second play park project in the town, a new facility within the memorial park, was officially opened on Saturday, December 1.
The community group raised the money in just one year, with North Norfolk District Council's big society fund providing £10,500, and North Walsham Community Shop giving the last £902.87 needed to make the dream become reality.
But it has already been vandalised.
North Walsham Play said on its Facebook page: 'North Walsham Town Council and North Walsham Play are aware of vandalism to the new play park.
