One of the many reasons people love Albuquerque has to be the amazing parks. Albuquerque Parks & Recreation manages almost 300 parks for the benefit of Albuquerque residents. You can engage in a wide variety of activities such as golfing, swimming, playing with your kids in the playground, walk through stunning open spaces, shoot some targets, ride a hot air balloon, you name it!
If you love to golf then you’re in luck, there’s four public courses – Los Altos, Arroyo del Oso, Puerto del Sol, and Ladera. All of the courses have a pro shop with rental equipment, along with a snack bar or café.
And if you want to go to a park, you have 288 parks to choose from! Of course the best park is no doubt Balloon Fiesta Park, home of the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum. The park also hosts a wide variety of events throughout the year.
So if you’re looking for a reason to get out and enjoy the beauty of Albuquerque, you just found almost 300 of them, so get outside and enjoy this wonderful city!
