About Alameda Bridge Bosque Trails
From the Paseo del Bosque trail ducks, geese and other wildlife can be viewed enjoying the Alameda Wetland. This constructed wetland is intended to replicate the natural wetlands that historically occupied the floodplain of the Rio Grande.

Distinguished cottonwoods shade two picnic areas at the northeast corner of the Alameda bridge from the New Mexico sun.

Alameda offers ample parking and easily accommodates horse trailers. Access is on the southeast side of the Alameda Boulevard bridge.

About Rio Grande Valley State Park
Established by the State Legislature in 1983, Rio Grande Valley State Park is managed cooperatively by the Albuquerque Open Space Division and the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District. The 4,300-acre park extends from Sandia Pueblo in the north through Albuquerque and south to Isleta Pueblo and is located on both the east and west sides of the Rio Grande.

The Rio Grande bosque Spanish for “forest” offers a unique environment in arid Albuquerque. Large cottonwood trees, coyote willow, and New Mexico olive create a cool, shady forest and provide habitat for beaver, numerous bird species, turtles, and snakes.
