The Colorado River State Park was renamed in 2005 to honor a visionary. A civic leader, former parks board member and chair, elected representative Mr. Robb was instrumental in creating this “string of pearls,” five distinct sections that make up the park, from Fruita on the west, to Island Acres on the east and three stops in-between. To visit the park, follow the Colorado River west from Debeque Canyon to Fruita, and enjoy five uniquely different river and lake based outdoor recreation opportunities.
