This trend of Albuquerque being in the lead for amount of Parkland per person doesn't appear to be slowing down. I recently heard that the city is planning to put an 81 acre park on Arroyo Vista Blvd. and 118th St. just west of where the APS sports stadium complex is being planned. There are also others being either planned or currently under construction in different parts of the Westside, as well as a fairly large park which is currently being developed on Wyoming and Carmel near La Cueva High School.

I don't see it listed in this thread so I think a URL to city of Albuquerque's open program might be in order:
It is chocked with a plethora of information...

(Yes Mortimer, we have both used the word on very rare occasions, for me it started in 1972)

I found this interesting considering that the parks where I lived when I was a kid in the midwest were enormous. You had to drive to get from one end to the other and you felt like you were not even in the city anymore. I always thought the parks out here were tiny in comparison.

Your trying to compare the size of parks in the "Midwest" to the city of Albuquerque?
