KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Bloch Cancer Survivors Park on the west side of the Country Club Plaza was vandalized this week.

Photos taken Thursday show a marker at the park torn from the ground, tiles broken off of a concrete wall and words and fingerprints marring another tile display.

The park, maintained by the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department, is located just south of 47th Street east of Roanoke Parkway.

City officials said in a tweet they are aware of the issue.
