The La Junta City Park

12th Street
La Junta, CO 81050

About Us:

City Park which was founded in 1905, was one of the original four parks. At the time of its establishment it created quite a controversy though. The site of what would become the City Park originally had a shallow arroyo that ran through it. City Fathers thought this would be ideal for the creation of a small lake - there was one problem though - it was way to far from town being about 1/2 mile south of downtown La Junta. There were some that didn't want to spend money on a park located outside of town. Aren't we glad they did spend the money for it? In the last one hundred years the town of La Junta has grown around the park.
