History Grand Lake Center


In 2011 the East Grand School District (EGSD) voted to close Grand Lake Elementary after 26 years of operation due to declining enrollment. The 22,000 square foot building, which sits on five acres, remained under the ownership of the EGSD until April 2015 when it was sold to the Town of Grand Lake.

The Town of Grand Lake, along with many dedicated volunteers, visualized a year round, multi-generational community event, recreation and resource center. In May, 2015 the facility was renamed The Grand Lake Center (GLC) and on July 1, 2016 they officially opened their doors.
