The City of Grand Junction has completed the installation of the new destination playground at Dos Rios Park. The project was completed with Summit Recreation who is the local vendor for KOMPAN, a commercial playground manufacturer.
The playground includes a climbing net structure consisting of two summits, the highest being 24’ and 20’, and will serve up to 75 children at any given time. The second-largest feature is the climbable playground structure modeled off the Humpback Chub, an endangered fish found in the Colorado River. This structure provides a fort-like atmosphere complete with slides. The space also includes smaller play features to complete the design.
The playground installation is part of the larger Riverfront revitalization project taking place at Dos Rios that is one of the priorities outlined in the Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Master Plan. The PROS Master Plan includes projects to be completed over the next several years. More information about the PROS Master Plan.
