Balloon Fiesta Park is home to the spectacular annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.
For year-round enjoyment, Balloon Fiesta Park also is home to Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum and the Albuquerque Golf Training Center.
This 360-acre City park is used year-round for various activities. More than 100 acres of the park is developed.
The park is used for year round ballooning, recreation field sports, golf practice, model aircraft flying (except for gas-powered model aircraft), walks and runs, bicycle racing, company picnics, concerts and special events.

Northern Launch Field
This joint-use 47-acre balloon launch field has space for about 23 game fields.
Informal use of the park is free, though the park is sometimes closed for special events.
Since the Northern Launch field is large, the park is best suited for medium to larger events.

LAFL Landfill Management Plan
In the 2011 General Obligation Bond Program, the Citizens of Albuquerque approved $500,000 for the development of this Tribute Area, and the Cultural Services Department contributed another $85,000. The Sandia Peak Ski and Sandia Peak Tram Companies provided an additional $250,000 in 2012. With this money, Phase 1 of the four acre park has been developed (pictured above). It has a strong graphic design visible from the air, and provides a framework for future improvements including the development of a balloon demonstration area.
As the Tribute Area develops, it will be playful and inviting for children and adults, and connect the Anderson-Abruzzo International Balloon Museum with the multi-use Balloon Fiesta Park.
With your support, the completed Tribute Area will provide an outdoor space for the remembrance and celebration of courageous balloonists.
