County hosts open house for new, expanded Veterans Memorial Park

The community is invited to learn about the proposed design to expand and relocate the Veterans Memorial Park, which will include a stormwater detention area.

The open house aims to share information on the intentions of the project and gather citizen input. Join us on Wednesday, Dec. 7 at 4 p.m. at the Mesa County Fairgrounds Community Building, 2785 U.S. Hwy 50.

“This project is to reconstruct and enhance the Veterans Memorial Park, to a 9.4-acre multi-purpose lawn space at the Mesa County Fairgrounds,” Mesa County Facilities Director Greg Linza said. “The new park will be the largest green space south of the Colorado River in the Grand Valley.”

Citizens are encouraged to attend the open house and share their thoughts and priorities.

“The Veterans Memorial Park will include a stormwater detention area that will help alleviate flooding in downstream areas of Orchard Mesa,” Mesa County Engineer Daniel Larkin said. “But, the focus of this project is to provide recreational opportunities to a diverse range of users.”
