Learn about the park

This regional park is home to six multipurpose sports fields, a softball field, and many other amenities you would expect in a large park. While reservations are not required for shelter usage they are strongly recommended. They do fill up very quickly during the summer. Mesa County has an agreement with the City of Grand Junction to handle the scheduling for the Long Family Memorial Park and you may contact them at 970-254-3866 or visit their Parks and Recreation page.
