Found dart closes beach for second time
On Monday, July 21, another blowgun dart was found near the shoreline at Tecumseh Park (The Pit). The beach area is closed until further notice.
According to Tecumseh Cultural and Leisure Services Director Shelley Lim, the lone dart was found in the area where the others were previously located near the shoreline.
“The person who found it called the police department,” Lim said.
Parks and recreation department employees were on site Tuesday morning, July 22, scanning the entirety of the beach with metal detectors.
Lim said there isn’t a plan to add more sand to the beach, and that the city is working on a way to ensure public safety.
