At long last, the new playground at Canyon View Park in Grand Junction is open and serving up a ton of fun for the kiddos.

It's been a little while ago, but as I recall, they didn't have playgrounds like this when I was a kid. Our playground consisted of a slide, swings, merry-go-round, monkey bars, and see-saw. Today's playground looks like a miniature Disneyland.

Check out our photo gallery, which gives you a peek at some of the fun at the new playground.
