Fairy House Scavenger Hunt in Highland Park Trails vandalized

A recent act of generosity and creativity in Guthrie’s Highland Park Trails has taken an unfortunate turn due to vandalism. A kind-hearted Guthrie resident, in collaboration with Guthrie High School art students and the Guthrie Job Corps, brought to life a delightful new amenity for the community: a Fairy House Scavenger Hunt. This whimsical adventure was designed to encourage park visitors, especially children, to explore the outdoors with maps and enjoy discovering unique fairy houses.

Thirteen meticulously crafted fairy houses were placed throughout the park, each one an embodiment of the hard work and artistic talent of local students and Job Corps members. The art students beautifully designed and drew each fairy, while the Job Corps skillfully constructed the fairy houses. This enchanting initiative was intended to bring joy and wonder to all ages, offering a unique way to engage with nature and foster community spirit.

However, just one week after the fairy houses were installed, vandals marred this joyful project. Only four of the original thirteen fairy houses remain intact. The rest have been broken, stolen, or destroyed, undermining the significant effort and time invested by the community.

In light of this, city officials are urging the citizens of Guthrie to come together and help restore what has been damaged. If anyone has any information regarding the vandals or the whereabouts of the stolen or broken houses, please contact the Guthrie Public Works office at 405-282-8400 or the Guthrie Police Department at 405-282-3535.
