Sandia Park is a small area in Bernalillo County, New Mexico of around 240 people, and it's just minutes from Albuquerque. The Sandia Mountains are located in Bernalillo and Sandoval counties, and this has made Sandia Park a recreational hub with plenty of outdoor activities the whole family can enjoy. Living in and around Sandia Park and the Sandia Mountains is ideal if you're into activities like hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and skiing. Plenty of these outdoor activities can be done with dogs, so you'll never run out of things to do with your pet in Sandia Park!
In addition to all of the outdoor recreational activities in Sandia Park and the surrounding area, Sandia Park even has its own dog park! Vista Grande Park is a six-acre park with sports fields, walking paths, shade structures, playgrounds, a large community center, and a fenced, off-leash park. This dog park tends to be pretty quiet as many people haven't discovered it yet, but this clean and peaceful park will be tons of fun for your pup! From April to October, there's running water in the park, so be sure to bring your own if you visit during cooler months. The rest of the park is dog-friendly as well, but your dog must be on a leash. You and your pooch will love exploring the Sandia Park area together!
