A skate park in Iowa has been closed indefinitely because of issues with vandalism. 

Authorities announced Thursday that the discovery of damage at Musser Skate Park in Muscatine prompted the closure, which is in place until further notice.

In a news release, the department said that cinder blocks were concreted to the interior of the skate park, and a parking block from the parking lot was placed on top.

Due to liability concerns, the park was closed and the gates were locked until the site can be cleaned and determined to be safe to reopen.

The parks department reported the incident to police.
