Workers' Memorial Park Visioning

The visioning and re-design of Workers' Memorial Park is a project being sponsored and managed by the Albuquerque Department of Parks and Recreation and Councilor Tammy Fiebelkorn.

Background and Goals

The visioning and re-design of Workers' Memorial Park is a project being sponsored and managed by the Albuquerque Department of Parks and Recreation and Council Services. Surrounding neighborhood residents have voiced a desire for a more user-friendly park space. The re-design process will address issues of safety, shade, neighborhood identity, play and recreation space. In the coming months, there will be multiple opportunities for community members to participate in walking tours, park mapping, surveys and community meetings.

Community Engagement - Get Involved!

This summer, community members are invited to join us in community walking tours of Workers' Memorial Park. During the walking tour, we encourage the public to make comments on the digital map below in any of the following categories:

  • Ideas and suggestions
  • Sites of opportunity
  • Something that concerns me
  • Something I like

Join us Thursday, June 30th at 5:30pm at the north end of the Park, across from the Starbucks at Haines and San Mateo. We look forward to collaborative, creative visioning for this lovely park site.

Site and Surroundings

Workers' Memorial Park received its name on April 28, 2000, when various Albuquerque union members gathered to change the name from San Mateo Mini-Park. Two city councilors and area neighborhood associations supported the name change.

Mile Hi, Alvarado Park and Sandia Ridge are the neighborhoods surrounding Workers' Memorial Park. They are represented by the  Mile-Hi Neighborhood Association  and the  Alvarado Park Neighborhood Association.  Most recently, a partnership was formed between the four neighborhoods of Mile-Hi, Alvarado Park, Fair West and Mark Twain to create the "Revitalize San Pedro Partnership". They are collaborating with New Mexico MainStreet and the City of Albuquerque to revitalize and promote economic development on San Pedro Blvd between the I-40 and Central Avenue.
