The Gibbons soccer field was recently vandalized.
 
Sometime between Sunday (Jun.11) and Monday, the soccer pitch was driven on while wet, causing significant damage to the grass. 
 
"I feel for the kids who use that field because the local groups they're really all we have for our entertainment," said Gibbons councillor Amber Harris. "And then I felt bad for the tireless volunteers who work with the minor soccer folks because they put their heart and soul into developing those fields and making sure they're playable."
 
This isn't the first time this has happened in the town.  A similar incident happened at the same time last year.
 
"It ticks me off that some people don't have any respect for property," added Harris.
 
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Morinville RCMP at 780-939-4520 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
