The Tullahoma Parks and Recreation Department announced on Christmas Eve:
“Hello Tullahoma, it’s makes us sad to do this, but Imagination Station will be closed to the public until further notice as of 12/24. Last night, someone vandalized the entire playground with extremely inappropriate symbols, images, and words. The amount of clean-up and restoration this will require is beyond what our staff can accomplish over the holiday break. We have reported this to the Tullahoma Police Department, and if anyone has any information on who did this terrible thing, please contact them right away. Again, Imagination Station will be closed until further notice. Please do not cross the barricades and caution tape. We’ll do our best to get it ready for play as soon as we can.”
By mid afternoon on Tuesday, December 26, 2023 Tullahoma Parks and Recreation Department announced
“We are happy to announce that Imagination Station has been cleaned and reopened! First, a tremendous thank you to the immense amount of people who volunteered to help. We are grateful for the community’s willingness to help. With a few staff that were available and a volunteer team from Wright’s Pressure Washing, the playground is back open and ready for play. Again, thank you to everyone for the outpouring of offers to assist, and thank you to Wright’s Pressure Washing for their time and work getting us back open.
The investigation into the culprits is ongoing. If you have any information, please contact the Tullahoma Police Department. Thank you.”
