The Town of Estancia, New Mexico

This is a great little town with a population of just 1700, located southeast of Albuquerque near the Manzano Mountains. It has an amazing city park that includes a small spring-fed lake, a community swimming pool (the only one in Torrance County), a beautifully designed, award-winning library, picnic areas built by local youth, and a very cool fountain. All of these scenes are from the park, which we visited recently.

I hope all this time you're spending in Estancia doesn't mean you've given up on Pecos. Do you know about the folks who left all the money to the town for the library? I think their name was Hubbard?

We were just in Estancia last week for a bull riding rodeo. We haven't been to that park yet, but the kids have been begging to go to their pool. I'll have to stop making excuses.
Nice photos. Looks like a fun visit.

I grew up in Estancia and I love my home. There's no place like it in all New Mexico. I hope every one could come visit this summer of 2010. The park is a great place for kid's and adults to have fun and stay out of trouble. And our pool is in the park how cool is that. Thanks :)
