In December 2010, the City of Albuquerque added 66 acres to its Major Public Open Space system. Formally named the Route 66 Open Space, the property protects a portion of the Tijeras Arroyo near Four Hills.
In 2011 volunteers began the process of restoring this natural treasure. Join us for a volunteer trash clean up of this unique property and help protect the important natural resources found here!
