Their inspection concluded that the unknown substance was, in fact, a silicone-based product. An unsettling discovery, especially considering the playground’s primary users are local children.

As the substance lethargically solidified, it became increasingly difficult to remove, adding an unforeseen level of intricacy to the clean-up operation. Despite the challenges, city workers persevered in their efforts to meticulously scrape away the rubberized residue from the play structures.

Thanks to their unwavering dedication and prolonged efforts, the playground is once again safe and open for the community’s enjoyment. However, the individuals who carried out this thoughtless act remain at large.

In light of this situation, the city is urging anyone who might have noticed unusual activity in the vicinity of the playground, or anyone who might have information relevant to the investigation, to make their contribution towards a swift resolution.

“Your collaboration has the potential to significantly expedite our investigation and ensure that those who committed these acts of vandalism face justice,” appealed the city authorities, reinforcing the importance of community vigilance.

Persons holding vital information relating to this incident may consider stepping forward by reaching out to the Brantford Police Service on 519-756-7050.
