“There is a community safety forum at St Joseph's in Mayfield soon and I'm sure residents will be raising the vandalism,” he added.
Glenamoy resident and Labour area representative John Maher described the vandalism in Mayfield as “senseless”.
“There was a bin in the park and it's only small. They took out the inner of the bin, which had very little rubbish, but it was enough to melt the tubing and cause the damage. It's the worst part to damage because it means that the kids can now not use it.
“It's stupid behaviour. A number of local residents have told me they are very annoyed by this.
“The company that put in the park have said they are going to repair the damage as soon as they can,” he added.
