A beautiful town in Los Alamos County
Strive for continuous improvement in the promotion of safety and the quality of the Parks infrastructure through reliable and consistent maintenance, design, development, and enhancement of the facilities and aesthetics of parks, public grounds, and trails and open space of Los Alamos County.
Los Alamos Mesa Trail Project - The Los Alamos Mesa Trail project is underway. The project, first proposed by the Trails and Pathways Subcommittee of the Parks and Recreation Board in 2003, will provide an ADA compliant, hard-surfaced multi-use pathway along the north edge of Los Alamos Mesa. When completed , it will offer the residents of the Eastern area, Aspen Ridge Assisted Living Facility, Sombrillo Care Center, and other residents and visitors a safe pathway for walking, jogging, and bicycling. Extending from East Park to the Los Alamos Airport, the hard surface and low grades will make it an easy place for all ages to enjoy the outdoors; the scenic views along the trail stretch from the Jemez Mountains to the Sangre de Cristo Range. As of September 15, 2006, the trail has been graded and awaits the application of pavement. The Parks Division hopes to complete the project by September 30. The Los Alamos Mesa Trail is the first is a series of proposed pathways along the rims of Los Alamos and Pueblo Canyons that will provide a non-motorized, safe trail network for recreation and for linking together neighborhoods, businesses, schools, and commerical districts in the townsite.
Parks Master Plan Public Meetings - The Parks Masterplan has been completed and is now available at the following locations for public review and comment: KanDu Center, Mesa Public Library, White Rock Library Branch and the Larry Walkup Aquatic Center.
Mesa Public Library Landscape Master Plan - In early spring of 2004, the Los Alamos County Council directed the Parks Division to develop a Master Plan for the landscaping and the landscape development of the grounds of the Mesa Public Library and the Betty Ehart Senior Center. The Parks Division staff met the Mesa Library management and a representative of the Betty Ehart Senior Center to determine the most appropriate approach for collecting ideas, thoughts and direction for this project. This core group decided a design cherrette was the best avenue to attain a conceptual plan. The group selected and invited 25 citizens representing the County, the Library Board, the Senior Center, Rotary club, local landscape professionals and Art in Public Places.
East Park and Rover Park Master Plans - As directed by the Parks Master Plan approved by the Los Alamos County Council in 2005, the Parks Division employed Roddick and Dunbar, LTD, Landscape Architects to develop the respective plans for Rover Park and East Park. Through a series of public meetings, the conceptual master plans were formed. Following a second series of meetings, the final documents were completed and presented to the public. The master plans will direct the development of the parks for the next five to eight years. At East Park, the proposed Dog Park has been installed and work has begun on the Los Alamos Mesa Trail. At Rover Park, the parking lot has been paved and awaits stripping. Further planned development and tentative schedule and budgeting will be discussed at future public meetings.
