GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — We now have an update on renovations being done to a local Grand Junction park. Long Family Memorial Park is Mesa County’s regional park spanning 40 acres and hosting multipurpose sports fields.

Crews are currently working on the finishing touches of the Long Family Memorial Park improvement project which is currently scheduled to be complete by May 2022.

Landscaping improvements are included in this project. Trees and greenery are being planted in parking lot islands. A new v-pan was also poured, and a stop sign was installed at the Fledgefield Drive exit. 

Once the fencing is completed between the park and the adjacent subdivision, the project will reach completion.

Mesa County says the finalization of this project will increase parking capacity on the north side of Long Family Memorial Park.
