The City of Grand Junction will close Whitman Park from 8 a.m. Monday, April 24 until 8 a.m. on Monday, May 1, 2023, as Parks and Recreation staff begin annual seasonal maintenance of local parks.
Routine maintenance is conducted at all city parks and in some locations maintenance work is more efficient and safer when the parks are empty. The work at Whitman Park will include turning on the water, trimming trees, and fertilizing among other maintenance tasks.
In addition to notices posted in the park, visitors to Whitman Park are being notified about the closure by city housing staff and Grand Junction Police Department Community Services Officers. Information about local resources will also be made available to everyone who is contacted.
Whitman Park is anticipated to reopen Monday, May 1, 2023, at 8 a.m.
