ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The Al Hurricane Pavilion is nearly complete ahead of an August 12th “One ABQ” celebration of volunteering- and it’s just one of many renovations made to Civic Plaza.
Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller says along with renovations, the city is focused on providing a safe experience for Albuquerque families.
“We have mixed (forms of security),” said Mayor Tim Keller. “We have APD out here, of course, but we also have the security officers for the city, in city hall and the convention center.”
The city says the plaza has 24-hour surveillance and security, with event-specific plans and additional personnel for large events.
The city recently revealed a new splash pad, playground, and ping pong tables. Mayor Keller says more additions are on the way.
“We’re adding more shade so that grass area is going to be shaded and there's going to be swings there and big slides, tandems,” Mayor Keller said.
Many of the renovation plans began during former Mayor Richard Berry’s administration. Mayor Keller says he was happy to inherit those plans and looks forward to building on them.
