“We need to work together as a neighborhood to stop this,” the Lykins Neighborhood Association said in a post on Facebook.

They said it’s been a problem in the past with ATVs and other recreational drivers causing damaging in the park.

The group asks anyone who knows the people responsible for the damage to message them on Facebook. They said they will keeps tips anonymous.
