Here in New Mexico, we love our state parks. While some of our largest state parks often receive a lot of attention, our smaller state parks are just as mighty. In fact, one of the smallest state parks in New Mexico — Rio Grande Nature Center State Park — is a hidden gem that deserves a spot on every individual’s bucket list. In fact, don’t be surprised if this becomes your favorite state park in the Land of Enchantment.
