GRANTS PASS – The City of Grants Pass Parks Division has announced the closure of the city’s Skate Park due to necessary repairs caused by the unauthorized installation of unapproved structures. City staff discovered the cinder block and concrete structures Monday, June 28.
The unapproved structures present a potential hazard to Skate Park users and are not covered under the city’s liability policies. The park will remain closed until city staff can procure a local contractor to safely remove the structures and restore the park to its approved condition.
Unapproved alterations or installations to or on city property are against the law. Violators can be charged with a crime and made responsible for covering the costs of removal and/or repairs.
Anyone with information regarding the unapproved installation at the city’s Skate Park is encouraged to contact the city’s Parks Division at (541)450-6161.
