Parachute is on the north side of the Colorado and Battlement Mesa is to the south. There is a rafting drop in to the Colorado River here, along with a park and ride just off the exit. Check out the town facebook page.
Check out the Parks and Rec Facebook page.
The Battlement Mesa Webpage is a must see for homeowners and potential homeowners for the wealth of information.
The Grand Valley Fire Protection District has facebook page.
I have really enjoyed following Visit Parachute!
