Centrally located near Albuquerque's Old Town, Tiguex Park has been an important part of community life ever since its completion in the 1970s. It serves the Plaza Vieja Neighborhood to the south, providing a venue for soccer, family gatherings, celebrations, performances, and a variety of other special events.
Facilities available within the park include four basketball courts, numerous picnic tables, grass fields, and playground areas for children. The park is also within easy walking distance of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History, while the Albuquerque Museum is directly to the west at the corner of 19th Street and Mountain Road.
Tiguex Park is part of the Albuquerque Prescription Trails Pilot Program, which provides walking guides and prescriptions for wheelchair rolling along routes within the city. The park's Inner Loop trail is rated Grade 1 in difficulty, just 635 steps or about a third of a mile. The Outer Loop is a half mile, or 1,050 steps, also rated Grade 1. The two loops connect at several points and are both fully accessible, with flat, eight-foot-wide concrete surfaces, suitable for wheelchairs.
Tiguex Park can be found at the intersection of Mountain Road and Rio Grande NE. The address is 1800 Mountain Road, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87104. It is the #36 stop on ABQ Ride, and parking is available on the streets surrounding the park.
