Things To Do


Encompassing 300 beautiful acres of bosque (riverside forest) along the Rio Grande, and 600 acres of adjacent Chihuahuan Desert, the Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park is a must-see. This day-use park is a refuge for wildlife and a haven for people seeing the quiet peacefulness of nature. Enjoy walking the trails that wind by native plant gardens, wetlands, high-grass meadows, and eroded bluffs. The visitor center incorporates green technology, including solar panels and adobe walls that help make it a premier environmental learning destination in southern New Mexico.
