About the Property

During the Paradise Hills Planning Study of 2014 and 2015, it came out that the unique and native basalt landscape is essential to the local sense of place and cherished as part of the community’s identity. Therefore, 1.58 acres of the Paradise Hills community center was replatted and dedicated permanently as Open Space in 2017. This area is one of the only remaining accessible above ground basalt outcrops in the Westside, and has been used for exciting geological study and education, and features unique ecological relationships. Memorable public art statues are another feature of the site, one that complements the wonderful view of the Sandia Mountains.

Planning and Management

Members of the Paradise Hills Civic Association are working with staff to develop interpretive signage. While there is a trail onsite, no more are planned for development. The primary goal for this site currently is gentle, restorative ecological preservation, and with the help from caring locals, this should be completed soon.
