Las Colonias Park
Las Colonias Park is 130 acres and sits adjacent to downtown Grand Junction along the banks of the Colorado River. It has a diverse and rich history, as it is situated just upstream from the namesake of the community, the confluence of the Gunnison and Colorado Rivers, and has strong connections to the rest of the community along an existing and expanding Riverfront Trail system. Several new facility elements have been completed including the River Park, restrooms, shelters, and concessions.
The River Park at Las Colonias includes a lengthy and accessible water channel, two standing wave water features, and beach and wading areas. These amenities are accessible to a wide range of ages, ability and experience levels. There is also a boat ramp on the east side of Las Colonias Park for boats to enter and exit the Colorado River. Please do not block the boat ramp entrance/exit.
The River Park will have the flow from the main channel cut off with sandbags when the flows drop below 810 cubic feet per second (CFS). This was a condition of permits being provided to enable the creation of the River Park. The River Park is still open when this happens but the experience is different.
