The Natrona County Sheriff's Department is investigating a recent case of vandalism at Crimson Dawn Park, Sgt. Aaron Shatto said Monday.

Some time between Wednesday and 3 p.m. Friday, some person or persons damaged an outhouse and an outbuilding at the park, causing more than $1,000 in damage, Shatto said, citing a Sheriff's Office report.

The door to a restroom was knocked off its hinges and the toilet paper holder was ripped off the hall, he said.

Likewise, the door on the outbuilding was kicked in and one window was broken, Shatto added.

The park was vandalized twice last year.

Crimson Dawn was founded by mountain resident and artist Neal Forsling who donated 96 acres for the public to enjoy.
Its major event is the annual summer solstice celebration, during which hundreds of visitors listen to storytellers spin tales of folklore of mythical inhabitants of the mountain.

If you have any information about this incident, please call the Sheriff's Office at 235-9282.
