Back in September, neighbors got upset after a new charity organization passed out hygiene products in the park.
In July, an 80-year-old woman living near the park was sexually assaulted and then shot in her own home. Police later found out that suspect was homeless.
People living near the park wanted something done about the homeless population and the crime.
"These are the folks that are breaking into our homes and breaking into our cars," says Steven Franklin, who lives near the park.
13 Action News reached out to the city of Las Vegas. They did not say they were closing down the park to address the homeless situation, only saying they were making improvements. The city plans to use herbicides and can not have anybody inside the park for safety reasons.
