In addition to notices posted in the park last Friday, October 28, visitors to Whitman Park are being notified about the 4 p.m. closure of Whitman Park beginning at noon on November 1 with reminders provided throughout the afternoon.

The work at Whitman Park on Tuesday will include winterizing the bathrooms and sprinklers, in addition to mowing and power washing. Parks staff will begin moving equipment and additional dumpsters into place Tuesday afternoon and to ensure public safety, the city will close Whitman Park at 4 p.m.
The Grand Junction Police Department Community Resources Unit be on hand to provide information about local resources as well as issue free bus passes.
