Officials say they are seeking information after a restroom area at Crystal Lake Main Beach sustained “extensive vandalism,” prompting a closure for repairs this week.

The Crystal Lake Park District said in a statement that the incident happened on Monday in the north restroom area of Main Beach, 300 Lakeshore Drive in Crystal Lake.

The restrooms, which are used by ice skaters and park visitors, have been closed since Monday for repairs and will reopen on Friday.

Erik Jakubowski, the Superintendent of Park Services for the Crystal Lake Park District, said the damage consisted of paper towels and soap dispensers being torn off the walls.

Some were thrown out onto the ice rink, Jakubowski said.

Door handles inside the restroom were also broken and soap was covering the floors with toilet paper thrown all over, he added.
