Welcome to Glade Park
Live in peaceful seclusion with adventure right outside your door
Located south of Colorado National Monument from Grand Junction, Glade Park is a community of vast open space. There is one store, a post office, and a fire department. There are many residential properties in Glade Park as well, but you won't see them unless you know where to look.
Residences in Glady Park are lavish luxury estates and large ranch-style homes. There is nothing uncommon about that in western Colorado. What is uncommon, however, is the size of the land parcels these homes sit on. Properties here range from five-acre parcels to over 300-acre parcels.

Though there’s an inherent laid-back vibe here, residents of Glade Park do enjoy an active lifestyle and prefer the outdoors as well.
This area was once a ranch and farming community, but now most of the residents simply enjoy their privacy and the ample outdoor recreation they are afforded.

The Glade Park Volunteer Fire Department (GPVFD) is funded by donations and fundraising efforts. Each Friday of the summer the GPVFD hosts a series of free Movies Under the Stars. Though the movies are free to watch, there is a concession stand where hamburgers and hot dogs can be purchased to benefit the GPVFD. In addition to the movie, there is pre-movie entertainment, volleyball, tether ball, corn hole, and hay rides. All the movies are announced on their website and are entirely family-friendly. Not only is this a great event and for a great cause, but it is a fantastic way to get out and meet your new neighbors.
