The Parks Department has shut down Grant Park in Concourse while the city assesses how much it will cost to repair the park.

Local residents say Grant Park was officially shut down in May and that garbage has piled up inside the park since. Structural problems are to blame, with park gatekeeper Troy Lancaster counting at least six sinkholes on the basketball court and playground.
