RESIDENTS in Coffs Harbour's Azalea Ave have been left annoyed by the disregard shown by a group of partying hoons.

Reports were made to police that youths were drinking alcohol and doing donuts in their cars at Shephard Park on Sunday night.

Parents with young kids arrived at the playground this morning to find wheel marks across the park and beer bottles and broken glass scattered across the grounds.

A concerned resident said the ruckus started around 7pm on Sunday and lasted an hour and a half.

"The language they were using just about turned the air blue," the nearby resident said. 

"It's a real shame these louts have done this and put out the residents not to mention the parents and kids in the area."

A red sedan was noted as the offending vehicle.

If anyone has any further information or registration details for the vehicle they are urged to contact Coffs Harbour Police or Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
