KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. -- The Klamath Falls Parks and Recreation Department needs your help. It’s trying to find who stole multiple pieces of playground equipment while a new playground is under construction. Items like an ADA seat swing, a crazy link and a geowave were taken overnight from a fenced off area of Mills Park in Klamath Falls.
“They’re taking away the excitement and enjoyment for kids for just an item that means nothing to them and has no value to them," said Larry Sells. He owns Between the Lines Carpentry and has been helping put the playground together.
He said he went around the neighborhood himself and learned no one was surprised things were stolen from a children's playground.
"That’s frustrating. We're trying to make everybody be involved even if you have a little bit of a handicap or disability. We’re trying to bring in items where these kids can also play and for somebody to go take that, that's frustrating for me definitely," Sells added.
The items are still missing and will be replaced at some point. Regardless, the playground will open September 27th.
