Westside Community Center Improvements

This project includes improvements to the Westside Community Center site and building, which are Very High and High priority projects respectively in the PROS Plan.

Site Parking and Drainage Improvements:

Additional parking areas will be added to the center, including 72 permanent parking spaces, and a flexible overflow parking area/field that can accommodate up to 80 additional vehicles. As part of the parking lot project, the Special Programs Building will be removed and in conjunction with Bernalillo County Public Works (Goff Drainage Project), drainage ponds will be reconfigured to provide more park area and create swales that connect via a new pipe to the Sanchez Farm drainage basin. The current Prescription (Rx) Trail that loops around Westside Park will be extended, connecting the community center to nearby Sanchez Farm Open Space. Other site improvements will include an outdoor stage, a small garden area, two large shade structures, two tree groves and a new playground.
