“Tuesday Night Concerts”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Large park on the river. Several parking lots, large children's playground, access to the river and clean restrooms. I was there on a Tuesday night to hear the free concert series. Set up on a large lawn the music was period jazz, many food vendors and some activities for children. Young, old, and in-between sitting on the grass, in folding chairs, are walking around. There were law enforcement wandering the grounds and blending in with the crowd. Everyone looked comfortable and relaxed.

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