This is a pretty incredible milestone for the team at Esperanza Bicycle Safety Education Center! They’re dedicated to helping our community one bike at a time. #OneAlbuquerque

This morning Luke Davis earned the 2,500th bike we've given out through our Earn-a-Bike programs! It's been a journey getting here and we aren't done yet. We've been lucky to have such a great staff and a solid core of volunteers to make it this far and help to get this many people riding our refurbished bikes. Keep riding safe out there, and if you need a bike or have questions please contact us so we can help you out!

Donations to the fund will be accepted before, during, and after the event through the One Albuquerque Fund’s website, www.OneAlbuquerque.com or you can text ONEABQ to (505) 658-0908 to donate now.

Parks & Recreation crews are diligently assessing fallen trees and limbs from yesterday's heavy winds. Cleanup work is ongoing and will continue over the next several days. With high winds continuing this morning, we urge anyone visiting a City park or Open Space property to exercise extreme caution as tree limbs have been weakened and may still fall to the ground. Please report fallen trees and large limbs by calling 311 or using the OneABQ app on your phone. #OneAlbuquerque

Thanks for the shout out! We've loved seeing our parks and trails as places for people to spend time to boost both their physical and mental health throughout the pandemic. #OneAlbuquerque

Public outdoor spaces have been a savior during quarantine and lucky for us, our city has an abundance of spots to get a little escape from the monotony of quarantine and soak up some sunshine. The New Mexico Veterans’ Memorial Park is one of the most overlooked outdoor spaces in Albuquerque. https://www.abqtodo.com/hidden-gem-nm-veterans-memorial-park/

I am a red cross first responder on disability and as such always wear my uniform proudly; and currently have the dept of justice law for the disabled who have either breathing problems ptsd anxiety and claustrophobia, that was endorsed by the cdc when people with any of these disorders died and thus the FEDERAL law was created so NO MORE would die. I was not only denied entry (even though I told the young woman that a violation carries a possible fine of $50k, she was unphased, and i told her I am told by the dept of justice to report any denied entry to them. all she could say was "you'll have to speak to the manager" and I said, no I don't have time (obviously first responders on call are busy) she also seemed unaware that to harass a red cross responder is a federal crime. I have often found that when a person disrespects a uniform there is a reason.
Good Job George Wolffe 768-5363 and Paul Kolman 249-0692 working hard to keep the kids off the City Fields. Give a call and a round of applause or voice your concerns. Hope you all sleep good tonight. #KickingKidsOffTheFieldSince2020
I’ve sent a email inquiring about the special use permit for a city open space. I’ve never received a email back. Can you assist me? My event is in March 2021
what are the chances of you guys getting someone to look at the flags at Bull Head part? all are torn beyond serviceable and the US flag is hanging by one eyelet
I am frustrated beyond belief, having spent 30 straight minutes calling the Rio Grande pool to reserve a lane and constantly getting a busy signal. I couldn't find a link to reserve a lane online, though it has been there in the past. This is an impossible system...!!
Is there a reason y'all, in the middle of the day, steal things from homeless folx in public parks? All of their things just stolen away? Shame on APD and shame on y'all for assisting as they harass our community.
Are the city parks open in Albuquerque now?
Why would you close the golf courses ... play is four golfers or less ... come on man!
Several of my friends boil water for a living. They sell the powder left over after all of it evaporates. We have learned that it is not a crime to do this, but we would love to know what all we are selling to other people.
