Tires have torn up the sports fields at the Port Dickinson Community Park and the First Ward Park.

It’s not clear if the vandalism was the work of a single party or group or just coincidental that both parks would be damaged over the same weekend.

The deep, muddy ruts are expected to take several weeks to fix at a cost of thousands of dollars.

The damage comes just days before the fields were to be officially closed for the season.
