Vandals have sprayed graffiti on the historical mural at Bergen Place Park.
The graffiti was discovered this morning. “I am deeply sadened by the lack of respect someone has for the mural,” explains Victoria Sangrey Hunter, who volunteers with Friends of Bergen Place. The mural was created in 1995 with help from the Ballard Historical Society, and it was dedicated by the King and Queen of Norway. “(It) holds deep emotional ties for many Ballard residents,” she says. “Please help us find those who did this, and if that can’t be done, then please watch the park and report illegal activity by calling 911.”
