South Valley Pool and South Valley Community Complex

Project Scope

The Parks, Recreation and Open Space Facility Master Plan (PROS Plan) identified renovation and improvement of the South Valley Pool as the highest priority project. The re-construction of the pool started in the fall of 2015 and construction was completed in time for the pool to open for the 2016 season at a cost of $820,000 (County General Fund and New Mexico Legislative Grant). Over three million dollars in Parks General Obligation bonds and $400,000 in 2016 New Mexico Legislative Grants were secured for a series of other amenities and improvements, including a new bath house, reconstruction of the mechanical room, parking and related landscaping improvements, a new splash park that includes a number of features such as slides, bucket dump and fountain features. Because the re-development of this facility necessitated additional space for parking, circulation and a re-design of the drainage system, the county has simultaneously undertaken a Master Plan has been to guide improvements to the entire suite of facilities, including the South Valley Skate Park, Rio Bravo Senior Center, Rio Bravo Park, South Valley Tennis Complex and the South Valley Little League. This master plan effort is referred to as the South Valley Community Complex and Rio Bravo Park Master Plan and was completed Fall 2017 and updated in 2019. The next phase of the project is to design and construct drainage, roadway, trail and parking improvements to enable traffic and pedestrians to more easily access Rio Bravo Park, the South Valley Little League and Harrison Middle School. The drainage and circulation improvements will enable the existing pond southeast of the pool to become a greenspace amenity for the pool and the Rio Bravo Senior Meal Site.
