Fox Memorial Park Adopt-A-Park

The city is looking for a business to adopt the neighborhood park.


Fox Memorial Park

This serene large open park has many trees to provide cool shade with lush green grass to enjoy relaxing or playing. The large playground and basketball court is a wonderful place for children to enjoy. The park is very pet-friendly for dogs on leashes. A great place to visit and enjoy the open grass area with friends and family with sitting benches.

Adopt-a-Park

Community organizations, businesses, and private citizens may adopt a park. The program is flexible enough to allow organizations, business or individuals to choose a location and level of commitment that works best for them, their family, or their staff. The best part—you can adopt a park in your neighborhood!

Contribute directly to the beautification of our City, starting with the area that matters most to you! Volunteering in City of Albuquerque parks is a great way to help our community shine!

Parks can be adopted collaboratively, or by a single family or organization. Families and organizations that adopt a park in-whole (with a minimum commitment of two years) will be recognized with the placement of a sign in the park to recognize and celebrate their contribution.

Parks are a place for everyone to enjoy, and the maintenance of our parks are a place for everyone to pitch in. Even if you don’t commit to adopting a park for two years, you can still sign up here to log the hours you spend doing your part to keep Albuquerque beautiful.

This program provides volunteers with excellent opportunities to gain valuable work experience, make a connection with the community, and meet new people. Plus, you can bring your family and pets to accompany you in your project.

New On-Street Parking Permit Process | Fair West

DMD Parking will still provide permits FOR FREE for persons who wish to pick them up in-person, as residents have always done. The new fees only apply to those wishing to use the online system.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The City of Albuquerque’s Department of Municipal Development (DMD) Parking Enforcement Division is implementing a new on-street parking permitting process in the limited number of neighborhoods where permits are required. On-street parking permits are now available online for a small fee to support the online service. Those who prefer to come down to the Parking Division and pick up their permit may still do so, and will not be charged.

Approximately 100 streets in 11 different Albuquerque neighborhoods utilize on-street permit parking to ensure residents have a place to park in front of their home. Neighborhoods near UNM, Downtown and near the State Fair are a few examples of where on-street permit parking is necessary.

The new fee structure in place for residents who prefer to use the online system is as follows:

  • Residential Permits: $25/year
  • Visitor Permits: $25/year
  • Landlord Permits: $30/year
  • Caregiver Permits: $5/6 month
  • Contractor Permits: $5/day
  • Moving Van Permits: $5/day

“In the past residents had to come to the parking enforcement office to renew their permits,” said Municipal Development Director Pat Montoya. “They can still do that if they want to, but for those who would prefer to skip the line or the in-person visit, we’re introducing a fee-based online system to get their permit from the comfort of their home.”

Each resident in an on-street permit parking district is able to receive 1 resident and 2 visitor passes or 2 residents and 1 visitor pass.
