ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The City of Albuquerque celebrated a major makeover at a park in the Foothills. The quarter-million-dollar project, at High Desert Park near Tramway and Academy, brought in new playground equipment and features around the park to improve accessibility.
“Great parks like High Desert Park are going to make life better not just for the part of Albuquerque, but for the whole city,” said Dave Simon, Director of the Parks and Recreation Department.
