Former Amusement Park Set For Demolition

Since the 1950's Fun Junction has been a landmark in Grand Junction
but soon the amusement park will be gone and in it's place will be a new strip mall. The Guyton family opened Fun Junction for 50 years. The family recently retired and made the decision to sell the property. Fun Junction is under contract and set to close on the 20th for more than a million dollars to a group of investors. The investors want to tear down the old amusement park and build a retail strip center. The center will be about 96?thousand square feet and may be home to a national fast food chain restaurant. Hill and Homes Real Estate Broker Stacey Cook says while it's sad to see the amusement park go it's also good to see new development in the area. The demolition of Fun Junction is slated to begin within the next 60 to 90 days.
