City of Grand Junction – Parks & Recreation


The 36 City Parks, over 20 miles of bike paths and over 900 acres of open space remain open. All bathroom facilites at the parks remain open and are being regularly cleaned and disinfected. Coloradoans are encouraged to stay active and healthy by walking, biking and jogging, and the Grand Junction Parks system is a great place to engage in these activities.

COVID-19 is affecting the Parks, Recreation and Trails System.
The Governor’s Executive Order (D 2020 017) and the Public Health Order (20-24) Implementing Stay at Home Requirements, issued March 26, 2020, mandates that all public ‘playgrounds, picnic areas, and other areas conducive to public gathering and other attended areas shall be closed’ through April 11, 2020.

To comply, the City of Grand Junction has closed all playgrounds, picnic areas, and shelters and courts (including basketball, volleyball, pickleball, and tennis). The indoor facilities, such as the Senior Recreation Center and the Orchard Mesa Pool, remain closed. Recreation programs and shelter reservations remain cancelled through May 15, 2020.
