Parks & Recreation Open Spaces

The Bernalillo Board of County Commissioners adopted the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan (PROS Plan) on Oct. 27, 2015.

This new plan will provide a 15-year roadmap for the development of future parks, recreation and open space facilities. The master plan is now available below in its final adopted form.

Adoption of the plan was the result of a two-year of planning effort, which included over 40 community meetings. A final set of meetings and surveys were conducted in June for each of the five commission districts, which helped the county prioritize projects proposed in the plan. The results of the prioritization process can be found in Section 6 of the PROS Plan. County Parks and Recreation staff are now in the process of implementing the priority projects in the plan.

Thank you to all of the county residents who completed a survey, participated in one of the public meetings and/or submitted a comment. 

 

 

To learn more about the meetings and the concepts presented in the master plan, please view our video below.

The Bernalillo County Parks, Recreation & Open Space Master Plan was initially developed in 2003. Bernalillo County has completed 75 percent of the projects identified. These projects include the Rio Grande Pool renovation; Bachechi, Pajarito; Durand, and Ojito Open Space; Hubbell House renovations and Open Space development; Vista Grande and Paradise Hills Community Center improvements; and playground upgrades throughout the county.
