Dow Alexander Park in Grass Valley open again after ‘trash and refuse’ forces closure

Grass Valley officials made the decision to close Dow Alexander Park in Grass Valley for 24 hours from Thursday to Friday morning.

The park, located near the Golden Center Freeway adjacent to Bank Street, Hansen Way and Bennett Street, was inundated with “transient related trash and refuse,” according to Grass Valley Police Department logs.

The log said the issue “reached a point where heath and safety was at risk.”



The action comes on the heels of a number of Nevada County residents speaking up to the Grass Valley City Council about a perceived rise of crime in the area and four transients arrested on charges of trespassing.
