The View From This Incredible Park In New Mexico Needs To Be Seen To Be Believed

You anticipate breathtaking vistas when you visit national parks and even some state parks. However, unless you live in New Mexico, you don’t expect panoramic views from a humble urban green space.

This area is so spectacular that it has been used as a movie location. Check out the opening credits of “Silverado” (from YouTube user, patwestward). Skip over the gunfight scene to the 1:18-minute mark. Look familiar?

Once a year, Overlook Park hosts a lovely kite festival. For more info. Like you needed another reason to come to this amazing place!

What’s your favorite urban oasis in New Mexico?
