Sandia Vista Park
Location: Albuquerque, NM
Sandia Vista Park was originally completed in the 1970’s and had several interesting features including rolling topography, several large existing trees, and a unique play structure. MRWM’s vision was to preserve and enhance these features while upgrading the irrigation, play structures and ADA access to current standards. The design also focused on improved irrigation efficiency and eliminating non-essential turf areas, resulting in an estimated water savings of over 600,000 gallons a year. The renovated park opened in late 2011 and quickly became a favorite gathering space for the surrounding neighborhood.
