DANIEL FERNANDEZ PARK, LOS LUNAS -part 1


This is the Daniel Fernandez Park on Highway 314 in Los Lunas, as it appears from the front.

There is a lot more to this park than can be seen from the front. I wanted to take some photos of folks participating in some outdoor activities, but a cold, blustery spring day like today is not the right time to do that. Instead, I'll just stick to words and try to describe it. Pictures will follow in a day or two, depending on the weather.

On the expanse of green in front of the building are several gazebo-like structures where families can gather for picnics. To the right there are a pair of tennis courts, and further right there are some bright yellow jungle gyms and some swings for the kids to play on. Behind the building there are a baseball field, a football field, a soccer field, and a lot more open space that can be used for about anything, plus ample parking.

Inside the building there is a gymnasium, convertible to an auditorium, a basketball court, or other uses. There is a large, rounded space filled with tables, chairs and snack/soft drink vending machines so people can sit and relax and watch, through tinted glass, the kids playing outside.

Cool and comfortable. This is a truly multi-use building and park .
