The grand opening was September 11, 1982. In 1985, a committee petitioned the City to rename the park as "Altrusa Park". A sign with the new name was erected, and Altrusa funded additional landscaping.
The exercise stations were removed in 1991 due to deterioration and liability issues. Altrusa of Montrose has continued to provide trees, benches, and playground equipment, plus plaques with names of plants and trees. Altrusans have also put in hundreds of volunteer hours grooming the flowerbeds in Altrusa Park.
