ran by pedos, gangs,drug dealers - 8/16/2019
I know this was the house it use to be red in the mid to late 90s. I was visiting my mother and she had to work on my visitation day so we all were sent to this woman for babysitting. I blocked it out through the years mainly because my mother told me to shut up and beat the ____ out of me. I told her I saw a Hispanic man about 5ft 4 inches tall molesting my sister Angie Harrison age 2-3. He was an illegal drug dealer/biker I have no idea what club but I could guess. The woman that ran the child prostitution day care was named Carol looks like alive oil mutated into a rat. She later became GM of Grants Pass McDonald on 6th street when I saw her again it flashed back the memory. I quit speaking to my mother after this and never really forgave her. She allowed it to happen and prob used it to pay for babysitting or split profit of her own kids. I thank god I was old enough to know wrong an right and told my father. He also told me to keep it quiet but I will never see her again if I Read More

I hate it and here is why you will too. - 8/15/2018
First off, I have lived in Grants Pass 25 years. Do you suppose I would know the city I grew up in? Don't believe the hype. As I type this you cannot see the mountains that surround Grants Pass. There is too much smoke from all the wildfires. We have have hazardous smoke from wildfires for the last three summers. It didn't use to be like this. At one point the air quality was sitting at 500, that is as unhealthy as you can get. People are wearing face masks to breathe because the smoke is suffocating us. I would never move to this city in a million years, I am here because I grew up here.

ECONOMY:
Dismal. The economy is sustained by customer service industries. Fast food places on every corner. Dutch Bros Coffee on every corner. Nothing but hotels, gas stations, mom and pop shops and antiques. Most of the jobs are either customer service based on health care based. The majority of the population is elderly people. For this reason, most of the jobs are stemmed from Read More

Worst town ever to live in!!! - 7/27/2018
First off, if the fire season ( during summer months) doesn't kill you the people will. The fire season here is pretty severe. Grants Pass is totally surrounded by mountains, and it gets hit hard during fire season! So, if that doesn't kill you the people will. People here only care about their own skin. Please do the research. Look at how many pedestrian deaths there are in this area, and many of them are hit and runs. In 2017 alone, there were 2 deaths in the area of school kids that got run over while waiting at school bus, and the city officials do nothing! One of the kids was mine, and what did did they change, nothing. City officials are heartless here. Run, don't move to Grants Pass. Worst town ever to live in!  Read More

Beautiful place on the downturn - 10/4/2017
5 Years ago, I would have given Grants Pass 5 stars. However the recent passage of Oregon's recreational marijuana laws have started a downward spiral that is unclear whether Grants Pass will ever recover from. Pot growers consider the climate in Grants Pass perfect for growing marijuana and thus I will start my review listing the pros and cons of someone who has lived here for the last 5 years.

Pros:
1. Grants Pass has a beautiful "old town" district which is vibrant, full of culture, festivals, live music, farmers markets, and offers a lot to all.
2. Grants Pass's Riverside Park is perhaps one of the most beautiful small town parks in America with regular festivals and concerts.
3. Grants Pass has successfully separated the "strip mall" shopping of the east side from the Historic Downtown district.
4. The Rogue River, nearby Oregon Coast, Redwoods, Crater Lake, and plentiful National Forest areas offer much for the outdoorsman.
5. Even Read More

Southern Oregon is BEAUTIFUL! - 3/10/2017
I have lived in Southern Oregon, outside of Grants Pass for twenty years. It is gorgeous, especially the surrounding towns---Wolf Creek and Sunny Valley a bedroom towns in the lush mountains and only 20 minutes from GP, with all the shopping and activities you could want in a small, clean, friendly town. I especially like small town living and the grade school, Sunny Wolf Charter School. in Wolf Creek is rated the highest possible, 5, by the state. The school is small, has wonderful staff and my daughter learned 7th grade stuff in 5th grade. Wolf Creek and Sunny Valley have everything you could need in a pinch...with gas and general stores. It's private and you are literally surrounded by trees in Wolf Creek. In all the years we've lived in Wolf Creek, we have never once been burglarized or anything negative. Small town living in southern Oregon is the best! Read More

No Justice - 9/16/2014
As corrupt as people can be, Grants Pass is by far the most deceitful city all of Oregon. If the courts or political parties don't know you, you will go to jail for a misdemeanor or infractions no matter what until you can post bail. The law is only there to serve it self. Unless fresh faces from outreach communities get elected into prime seats of the offices of Grants Pass there is going to be no end to the corruption that is Grants Read More

Fresh Air - 4/8/2012
The place is still small enough you can be known by a lot of people. There lots of things to do. Booting, fishing, skying, hunting and a lot more. One thing, when you wake in the morning you will experience a fresh clean and crisp ready to go, feeling every day. Its the Read More

Abundance of culture for a small city - 10/8/2011
You will be surprised by the variety of cultural opportunities in Grants Pass. Last weekend (Oct 1) the annual Art Along the Rogue was held. This chalk art festival brings in professionals from the local area as well as the world. Incredible work. We have one of the oldest small theaters in Oregon as well as summer musical theater as well as several other theater groups. We have numerous private art galleries as well as an excellent art museum in the center of downtown. You can find something every weekend.  Read More
