This 13-acre park was built during the Great Depression with funding from then Mayor Clyde Tingley's close friend, President Franklin Roosevelt. The laborers were paid $39 a month and the site was originally a sandy arroyo filled with garbage. Located just east of I-25 and close to UNM, The giant trees in this long standing park offer a well-shaded place to run or walk the trails, plenty of meandering hills present an outstanding playground to roll around, play Frisbee-golf or find a quiet niche to sit in. In the winter, this is an ideal place to go sledding.
