What Happened to all the Homeless in Escondido's Grape Day Park?
Over the past two months, Grape Day Park in the center of Escondido has become a family-friendly place again.
The homeless population, which for years filled the city's most visible park all day, has been drastically reduced. Where once there were dozens, now there are just a handful.
It's not an accident. The city has taken an aggressive approach not just with the homeless in Grape Day Park, but throughout the city - and is being praised by homeless advocates in the process.
