Also known as Tingley Beach, the Tingley Aquatic Park is open year round, providing opportunities for angling, boating, and picnicking, among other recreational activities. In addition to three fishing lakes, the area has a model boating pond, a gift shop, and food service at the Tingley Cafe. The latter's menu includes hamburgers, hot dogs, light snacks, and beverages.
There is also a train station, where passengers can board the Rio Line to the Aquarium/Garden and Zoo. Public restrooms are available at the south end of the station, and they are open daily from sunrise to sunset.
Fishing licenses and gear may be purchased at Tingley Beach Outfitters inside the railway building. Train tickets are sold here, too. In the summer months, pedal boats, as well as bicycles, may be rented at the gift shop.
There is no fee for admission to Tingley Aquatic Park, which can be accessed from dawn till dusk. No reservations may be made; all facilities are available to the general public on a first come, first served basis.
Tingley Aquatic Park is located at 800 Tingley Drive, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87104. It is across from the Albuquerque Country Club, south of Central Avenue and just east of the Central Bridge.
