Six weeks after its grand opening, the Shelby County Skate Park has been closed after a portable toilet was burned down, apparently as an act of vandalism, according to Clay Cottongim, director of Shelbyville/Shelby County Parks and Recreation.
Cottongim added that the park will not re-open until the vandals are caught.
"What we're going to do is put the word out on the street that the park will not re-open until we find out who did the damage," he said.
According to Cottongim, the incident happened at about 10:54 Monday night.
