The Unique Park Everyone In New Mexico Should Visit At Least Once

A half hour drive east of Albuquerque lies a nature park that provides a sanctuary to rescued animals. All of the inhabitants of Wildlife West Nature Park found their way to this serene patch of New Mexico following some kind of traumatic event that left them unable to return to the wild.

The creatures are all native to the American Southwest. So a visit to this park allows you to learn a little about the flora and fauna that surrounds us. Of course, you’ll spend most of your time watching the birds and animals.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

This park is located at 87 N Frontage Road in Edgewood.
