    Paradise Hills Community Center Improvements

    Major renovations are proposed to the Paradise Hills Community Center, the county’s busiest community center.

    Paradise Hills Community Center: Mobility, Parking and Park Improvements

    In the initial redevelopment phase for the Paradise Hills Community Center and adjacent facilities, the county will address key community concerns regarding parking, circulation and pedestrian safety. These improvements will also accommodate future expansion of the community center, which will result in the elimination of parking on the east side of the building. A speed table and herringbone parking are proposed for Park Lane NW to slow traffic, increase safety for kids crossing from the center to the park and increase parking space. Approximately 300 new parking spaces will be added over several phases for a total of 312 (including 116 spaces added around Paradise Park, and 30 annex spaces). These spaces are required for the 38,000 square feet addition. Park changes are necessary to accommodate bleachers, parking along the western edge of the site, a platform for and a proposed upgrade to the existing skate park. There has been extensive coordination with the Bernalillo County Public Works Department and the Albuquerque Metropolitan Arroyo Flood Control Authority (AMAFCA) concerning the proposed reconfiguration of Park Lane and parking along the perimeter of Paradise Hills Park to ensure improvements do not impair the park’s function as drainage facility. Traffic and drainage studies build on earlier joint efforts by the county, AMAFCA and the city. Completion of parking at the Annex and an Rx trail loop connecting it to the Main Building was completed previously in 2015. Funding for the project was secured in the 2014 and 2015 Legislative Sessions and through the 2014 Bond.
