“Beautiful Park if you want a needle stick!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

So I've lived in Grants Pass for two years now. I've got 3 kids so parks are very important to us. We used to go to Riverside Park until my husband started working in the ER here. He's one of the docs in the ER. In the last 2 years he has seen 3 children that have had needle sticks from dirty needles and one child that swallowed a pill (drugs) that were left at this park.

Yes it's the most beautiful park we have here. BUT this is where the druggies hang out - ON the playground equipment - and you will also find many homeless people hanging out there.

If you are trying to find a less sketchy but beautiful park try the "All Sports Park" or also called "Reinheart Volunteer Park." It's got a place for kids to play, ducks, bridges, lots of places to take pictures, a huge bridge that goes over the Rogue River.

“Nice city park”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

A beautiful city park in the heart of Grants Pass, Oregon. I especially like seeing the ducks and geese. My husband and I recently ordered Subway sandwiches and took our lunch to the park to eat and then walk along the many paths. We saw several people just sitting and reading. Quit peaceful when we went.
