(BARTHOLOMEW CO.)- The scenery at Anderson Falls in Bartholomew county is being barraged by people causing damage at the nature preserve.

parks board treasurer David Apple says over the years the park has been the target of graffiti, drugs, and those dumping their trash.

Apple says the board once tried to add portable washrooms to the park after the permanent bathroom was vandalized. That experiment didn't end well, someone threw it over the hill and into the creek.

Apple told FOX59 News that Anderson Falls is tough for law enforcement to regularly patrol because it's in a relatively remote location. And due to budget constraints, the board can't hire a regular patrol. So now, the parks board is hoping that park goers and county residents can pitch in to help keep Anderson Falls in good condition.

In December, a special public meeting will be held to help create an action plan for that could lead to improvements. The board is partnering with Purdue University and their program called "Enhancing the Value of Public Spaces "to come up with that plan.

That meeting is scheduled for December 7 at 3 p.m. in the Bartholomew County commissioner's chambers.
