BERNALILLO COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) – The Bernalillo County Parks, Recreation, and Open Space is focusing on the South Valley as they hope to update their master plan. During Wednesday’s meeting, Bernalillo Count staff presented potential plans that will provide a roadmap for the development of future parks, recreation, and open facilities south of Rio Bravo.

Senator Michael Padilla attended the meeting and said it is important to have recreational services. “What we’re trying to do here is bring together state resources, county resources, neighborhoods, you will see a lot of neighborhoods here tonight. And so bringing all those resources here tonight helps us to get larger projects done,” said Sen. Padilla.

Officials say the Master Plan is expected to be completed by spring 2025.
