Located adjacent to the Rio Grande Bosque, Tingley Beach consists of three fishing ponds that are open to the public, free of charge. All anglers are required to have a New Mexico fishing license. You can purchase a fishing license here.  Game and Fish representatives and/or ABQ BioPark Security will be monitoring for license compliance.

Tingley Beach also offers wildlife watching, paths for running and walking, and boating opportunities.  

Please be respectful of other users, the environment and waterfowl by observing Tingley Beach rules and regulations.

Anglers ages 12+ need a valid NM fishing license. Admission to the ponds is free.
