The graffiti was discovered Monday morning on buildings at Kennedy Park in the 1600 block of East Madison Avenue in El Cajon.
The graffiti was found throughout the park, including the recreation center walls, the snack bar and on the wall and ground of the ball field.
Police said the graffiti consisted of tagging consistent with words, phrases and symbols used by hate groups, which included swastikas.
Those who visited the park on Monday could not help but notice the defaced property.
"We're out here trying to have a good time," said park visitor Albert Izquierdo. "Obviously, it doesn't look nice."
A witness who only wanted to be identified as "Leo" told 10News he saw four people who looked suspicious leave the park at about 4 a.m.
"They were the only four people out here besides me at the time, so it makes it rather hard to believe they didn't do it," he said.
Leo said he saw two men wearing all white clothing and two women. One of the women was carrying a large duffel bag, which may have been filled with spray paint.
"I get up by the building and notice there's wet paint on it and I start looking at it and tag markings," said Leo. "I noticed all of the buildings all the way down to the ballpark are completely tagged."
Leo said he then called police.
There have been no other recent incidents similar to this, police said.
Anyone with any information regarding this incident is asked to call the El Cajon Police Department at (619) 579-3311 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
