Police are appealing for information after fire damage has been found at parks in Hasland and Chesterfield.
The incidents happened sometime overnight between Monday, September 1 and Tuesday, September 2.
Park rangers reported that a wooden picnic table, near to the water fountain, at Eastwood Park, Hasland, and the side screens on the cricket pitch at Queen’s Park, Chesterfield, been damaged by fire.
PCSO Zoe Blount of the local Safer Neighbourhood policing team has been making enquiries.
She said: “Fire can easily get out of hand, and by setting fire to anything you are potentially putting yourself and others at risk of harm. It is also costly to replace and repair equipment and is unpleasant for other people wanting to enjoy the facilities.
“If anyone has any information, or noticed anything suspicious in the areas at the time then please contact us.”
Anyone with information should contact Derbyshire police on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
