Bridgewater's mayor says it's frustrating someone felt the need to lash out by damaging the new boardwalk on King Street.
Mayor David Mitchell says hearing a trash can fire had damaged the brand new boardwalk left him with a mixed bag of emotion.
"I was, um, a whole bunch of things when I heard. Disappointed, frustrated, angry. It's heartbreaking that someone would think 'Oh, I have an idea, why don't I light the park on fire.'"
Mitchell says the point of the $5-million revitalization project was to help residents feel a pride in where they live.
