Vandals have left smashed glass, broken furniture and rubbish at the closed Port Fairy Skate Park in an act council has labelled as 'disappointing'.
A Moyne Shire Council spokesman said it was made aware of the vandalism and a crew cleaned the area on Monday.
The outdated facility, off Campbell Road, was closed to the public in January last year after park users raised other separate safety concerns. Signage advising users of the closure is displayed.
"Typically at this time of year we see an uptick in vandalism and our crews work hard to keep things in order," the council spokesman said on Monday.
Similar acts of vandalism are believed to be an ongoing problem at the defunct skate park site.
"Vandalism of any kind is disappointing and creates unnecessary additional work for our crews," the spokesman said.
