GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — As riverfront revitalization continues in Grand Junction, the city celebrated its newest feature Tuesday morning, a zipline at Las Colonias Park.

When I came into town every day over the Fifth Street bridge, I crossed a junkyard of 8,000 cars. To see this develop and have been part of this is one of the most meaningful things I’ve been able to do on city council.

Anna Stout, Grand Junction Mayor

Bonsai Design unveiled the new 1,000+ foot zipline on August 15. Riders will launch from the Eagle Rim Park west shelter and land at Las Colonias Park on the north side of the Butterfly Pond.

Bonsai CEO Thaddeus Shrader says the zipline costs around $600K and took about 2 and a half years to design and build.
