Graffiti and vandalism in our parks is a serious, unnecessary, and costly problem. The time and money spent repairing damage done by vandals could be used to further improve and beautify our parks. This is a serious problem. Don’t let a few individuals ruin the enjoyment of the parks for others. If you see a vandal damaging a building, driving on the grass or defacing a piece of playground equipment, please call the Sterling Police Department at 522-3512 to report it.
Park Bench Donation
The City of Sterling Parks, Library and Recreation Department has a program in place for the purchase of memorial benches in our area Parks, although Pioneer and Columbine are completely full, we have numerous other great Parks to choose from! The benches cost $2,000 and a plaque will be attached to each bench with the wording of your choice (restrictions do apply). This is a great way to donate a memorial bench that will be enjoyed by the public for many years to come. If interested, please come in to the office of Parks, Library and Recreation, City Hall, 421 North 4th St., Sterling, CO., and you can discuss with us were you’d like the bench to be placed, you can print out the form to bring in with you, or you may also call 522-9700 ext 1102 for further information.
