The City of Albuquerque has issued a Request for Proposals for landscape architectural services to renovate a popular park in the historic neighborhood of Barelas.
The RFP is specifically looking for someone to do site planning, design, and analysis work related to the park’s renovation.
Funding for the project was announced earlier this year, with work possibly to include include new lighting, a renovation of an existing playground, a community plaza, shade structures, and irrigation improvements.
The 3-acre park, located off the 700 block of 8th Street SW, includes tennis courts and an open grassy area sandwiched between the Barelas Community Center and the Barelas Senior Center.
Barelas is located to the south of downtown Albuquerque and has a population of around 3,400 people. The neighborhood’s main commercial area is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
