The two-acre park, near 118th and Dennis Chavez, features a play area, basketball court and picnic area. 

“Parks are so important to our communities, and we’re thrilled that Anderson Heights Park provides a safe place for kids and families to relax and play,” said Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller, who joined city councilor Klarissa Pena and neighbors for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Keller said the park was made possible by voters, who approved more than $935,000 in the 2013 and 2017 General Obligation Bond elections.

The construction of the park hit a roadblock in 2018 after Native American bones were located on the property. The city worked with local Native American tribes to properly relocate the bones.
