Recreation in Albuquerque

Albuquerque's central location and ideal climate are conducive to year-round participation in air, water, and land activities.

Golfers can enjoy the many public and private golf courses located throughout the Albuquerque area. For more information on public courses call 505-888-8115.

Skiers enjoy Sandia Peak, about 35 minutes from Albuquerque. You can also reach this ski area by taking the aerial tram.

All types of fishing are available in the rivers and lakes in the state park system, not to mention the many other alpine lakes in the forests and wilderness areas. Just because Albuquerque is in the desert does not mean that residents do not enjoy sailing and windsurfing. Heron Lake hosts the Hobie Cat Championship and Abiquiu Dam is a favorite of windsurfers. For water-skiing, most enthusiasts go to Elephant Butte Reservoir.

There are more than 52 state parks and monuments, 21 wilderness areas, 11 national parks and monuments in New Mexico, and more than 150 developed city parks in Albuquerque.
