Another dog park, the Rinconada Dog Park, is anticipated to be opened in December. It will be adjacent to the new Animal Services of the Mesilla Valley facility. The Rinconada Dog Park and new animal shelter are included among the City’s 2018 GO Bond projects.

The 2018 GO Bond, approved by voters, has provided $36.5 million in parks and sports field improvements and additions; the new animal shelter; the replacement of Fire Station 3, on Valley Drive; and walking, jogging, biking, and recreational trail improvements.
