Framingham, MA - On Saturday, May 12, 2018 the City of Framingham’s first Skatepark located in the Farm Pond Park was damaged by graffiti. We appreciate the community’s support; there have been numerous requests from residents to assist with the removal process. The concrete surface requires a specific method of removal to ensure that the surface is not impaired. The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Division is working with the Skatepark’s designer to appropriately assess and repair the damage in time for the grand opening. The Skatepark will remain closed until the graffiti is removed and construction is complete.
“I would like to acknowledge the scores of residents that have called and offered their services to assist in the removal process. Framingham is truly amazing, and we are thankful for the community’s support,” said James Snyder, Director of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs.
The Framingham Police Department is currently investigating the incident. Community members are asked to report any suspicious or illegal activity in the park to the Framingham Police Department.
