Used for everything from dog walks and walks to competitive Frisbee and softball, the field has deep tire marks, says Isaac Gonzalez.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A Jeep driver was caught on video drifting through the muddy grass of Tahoe Park on Friday, causing damage to the field below and frustrating the community.
Used for everything from dog walking and walking to competitive frisbee and softball, the field still bears deep tire marks, according to Tahoe Park Neighborhood Association president Isaac Gonzalez.
“I am very frustrated that our park was damaged last night by an inconsiderate Jeep driver making donuts on the wet, muddy grass of the park’s baseball field,” Gonzalez said. There is
He says he’s never seen more “deliberate and thoughtless vandalism” in his 15 years of living in the neighborhood.
“I can’t remember anyone who decided so badly to disrespect our parks by making donuts on the lawn area,” he said. I can’t imagine it, obviously not.”
Sacramento Police say they are aware of the video and will investigate the incident, but it will be difficult as the car does not appear to have a license plate on the front.
Gonzalez says he’s even more frustrated with the situation because parks in Sacramento are still hurting after recent storms soaked grass, knocked down trees and caused other damage.
“It’s very infuriating to add another piece of deferred maintenance to our list of things to do at our park in Sacramento,” he said. I don’t know, but it doesn’t go away on its own, and it can take weeks or months before it’s dealt with.”
He said Saturday morning’s softball game on the field was affected by deep tire marks, and he fears someone could get hurt if the damage isn’t repaired quickly.
Gonzalez says the city is unaware of plans to close the park, but people from all over the world come to enjoy everything the park has to offer. We warn you to pay attention to potholes in the ground.
The situation is frustrating and shocking, but Gonzalez hopes the community will get through it.
“We will work together to overcome this and find a way to fix it as soon as possible,” he said. “I wouldn’t be surprised in a few days if the community came together and didn’t figure out how to fix this themselves so that no one would hurt themselves.”
