Saturday, March 30 is National Take A Walk in the Park Day, which gives me a chance to brag on some of Grand Junction's outstanding parks.

Parks are great for walks, playing with your leashed dog, throwing a frisbee around, sitting on a bench to read or meditate, letting the kids play, or having a picnic. Grand Junction has so many great parks, I wonder if you have experienced them all.

This is not a comprehensive list by any means, but here is a look at five of Grand Junction's great parks, just begging you to come take a walk on National Take a Walk in the Park Day. This weekend, why not take a little time to slow down, relax, reflect, and release all the stress from the week.
