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.
