Town Manager Asks For Residents Help With Vandalism Issues At Yentile Farm

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Town Manager Jeff Hull recently highlighted vandalism issues at the Yentile Farm Recreational Facility in his quarterly Town Topics column:The Yentile Farm Recreational Facility has been a truly successful investment by residents. The space has provided a second artificial turf field available for practices and games for local sports teams, additional basketball courts for the spontaneous “pick-up” games, play areas for youngsters and a beautifully landscaped area with a pavilion. The park is heavily utilized which the Town strongly encourages.The Town is seeking the support and cooperation of residents to ensure that this special place remains a recreational “gem.” Unfortunately, vandalism has occurred both to inset stones that surround the footings at the pavilion and inside the restrooms. If you see something contact Public Works at 978-658-4481 or the Police Department nonemergency line at 978-658-5071. While the park may be a public space it should be treated with the same care and respect as we treat our own living space.Yentile Farm Recreational Facility is a “carry-in carry-out” facility. While it may be inconvenient to take the coffee cups, pizza boxes, sandwich wrappers and drink cans with you when you leave the park it is a tremendous help in maintaining a clean and welcoming space. There are numerous public spaces across the state and across the country that are “carry-in carry- out.” Such a policy cuts down on rodents, insects, bees and other critters seeking out trash as a food source.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
