I don't know much, but to my untrained eye, this looks like gang markers. Kind of scary when you think of the families with young children that play at this park and all of the sporting events held for children at this park.

Those weren't gang signs, they painted swastikas.

I taught in a chesterfield county public school that was vandalized and similar symbols were painted on everything. We were told that the school was vandalized every couple of months as part of gang initiation. You would be amazed at what 4th and 5th grade students write about gangs in their writing. They are in this area and becoming stronger every day. I don’t know a lot about the symbols and colors gangs use, but I do know they in our area.

Would you not consider a group of Nazi-loving punks who do things like this to be a gang?! Think before you speak.

I'd close the entire park. Perhaps you could get someone to admit who the culprits are - even if it takes a little reward money. These acts of vandalism need to STOP. They cost taxpayers a lot of money each time public properties are violated. I wonder if this stems from the incident on the basketball court last week? What a mess.

Ignorance? Perhaps the correct spelling of "pity" will assist you in the future. Cheers to your fine comment and the wonderful contribution.

It's not only Chesterfield. The entire area is deteriorating - as is the country. Wherever you decide to relocate, read up on crime rate and recent criminal activities.

This is ridiculous. The only reason this even happened is because of the moron who shot someone there last week. I don't know of ANYTHING that has ever happened at Rockwood, then all of a sudden, two incidents in one week. It's got to be ignorant kids doing this, no adult would conduct themselves in this manner. I hope they find them and let them learn how to behave the hard way. Clearly their parents aren't doing it.

agreed - gang initiation - but according to the County-- there is no gang problem -- stop looking thru rose-colored glasses.

I live in Midlothian proper and we never have stuff like this happen there. I love using all of my rich, white, head-in-the-sand, yuppie neighbors as human shields against the filth of the Greater Richmond area. Like me. God, I love White Flight.
