The PAWS Community Dog Park reopened Jan. 22, after closing Jan. 12 due to security concerns, according to the park's Facebook page.

The park is surrounded with a chain link fence, and while closed, its three entry gates were locked.

By Jan. 12, around 30 signs had been vandalized, according to Shelley Butler, PAWS executive director. Damage included the word 'masks' being cut out of signs requiring face masks to be worn when entering the park. Signs were also scrawled with marker. New signs had to be ordered, and the park cleaned up to remove debris from the damaged signs.

The vandalism started in November, when a state order required masks to be worn outdoors in public settings.
