Living in the northeast means you can commute by Interstate I-70, the 29 Road corridor and connect to Riverside Parkway and Orchard Mesa. Colorado Mesa University and medical facilities are nearby and there is shopping and restaurants along North Avenue. Four elementary schools, Bookcliff and Grand Mesa Middle School and Central High School serve the northeast. Long Family Memorial Park is one of the larger parks in the area and is close by. The NE Grand Junction area also extends south of Patterson (F Road) to North Avenue and includes an area known as Fruitvale. Housing options include apartments, townhomes, multi-family and single-family subdivisions. Most of the homes date from 1970-1980’s and quite a few after 2000. Currently three new home subdivisions are active: Walnut Estates, Stagecoach and Saddlegate. The Knolls is one of the more popular subdivisions with large lots and lush landscaping.
