The City of Albuquerque Open Space Visitor Center celebrates the gradual change of seasons - we enjoy the Bosque, the Sandias, and our West Mesa in a new way in the cooling temperatures and changing daylight. Twenty-one acres of agricultural fields, the edge of the Bosque, and the backdrop of the Sandias at sunset.

The Full Moon concert presents a companion activity to enhance your experience: Learn to lasso with Slim Randles.

Event: A Picnic with The Buckarettes

Please bring a blanket or chairs and enjoy these local musicians on our back patio – a patio with a view to be experienced.
