River park long needed

Something different is happening along the north bank of the Colorado River in lower downtown Grand Junction.

Officials with the city of Grand Junction, Colorado Riverfront Commission and other organizations broke ground this week on phase 1 of Las Colonias Park. The project will involve $770,000 for a shelter and trail connections near the Western Colorado Botanical Gardens and along the Colorado Riverfront Trail. The project also includes development of an arboretum and pollinator garden.

The land on which the park is being developed played a significant role in Grand Junction’s earliest history.
