Come out for a 5K run or walk that’s in the spirit of the season. The first 300 entrants will receive a Santa suit or race shirt to wear during the race.

The City of Grand Junction is in the midst of developing a Master Plan for Horizon Park. Horizon Park is located at 731 27 Road, directly west of Fire Station #6. This undeveloped park is 13 acres, surrounded by residential development, and is appropriate for a neighborhood-serving community park. Community input is a critical part of determining the future of this park and the City of Grand Junction wants to hear from you.
A total of three public meetings will be conducted for this Master Plan. The first meeting was held on October 5. Attendees provided input on what amenities they would like to see at the park. During the second meeting on November 9, two concept plans were shared with attendees. Attendees had the opportunity to pick their favorite plan and provide additional input. If you couldn't join us at the second meeting, visit gjpr.org/horizonpark by Tuesday, November 16, to view the concept plans and provide feedback.
Please park on the north side of the fire station. DO NOT park in the fire station's parking lot.
Can't attend an in-person meeting? Visit gjpr.org/horizonpark after October 5, 2021, to provide your input.
City of Grand Junction administrative offices will be closed on Friday, December 24th in observance of Christmas Day.
There will be no City trash collection on December 24th and the trash collection schedule will be delayed by a day for the remainder of the week. For the GJCRI curbside recycling collection schedule, please call 970-242-1036.
Wishing you safe and happy holidays from the City of Grand Junction!
