A police investigation is underway in Belleville, Ont. following a spree of vandalism at the city’s Parkdale Veterans Park’s Field of Ability.

The Field of Ability, which was built with the support of the Jays Care Foundation, is an accessible recreational facility featuring a rubberized baseball playing surface and is home to Quinte Challenger Baseball.

Several areas of the facility were spray-painted with graffiti, including the word “war.” Efforts are being made to remove the graffiti.

Quinte Challenger Baseball is a league that empowers people with disabilities to develop skills and boost confidence while enjoying sports.
