City Parks: America's New Infrastructure


 The City of Santa Fe Parks & Recreation Department offers a wide range of recreational opportunities for adults and children alike by providing innovative and sustainable services at all city parks, trails and recreational centers.

Santa Fe offers more than 50 scenic parks, from neighborhood rose parks to historical and athletic parks. Play a game of tennis on one of the city's outdoor tennis courts or enjoy a leisurely stroll with inspirational views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. At the Santa Fe Municipal Recreation Complex, for example, you can watch a game of soccer, softball or rugby, if one is scheduled, or let the kids play on the large jungle gym.

At the Genoveva Chavez Community Center, the city's largest recreational facility, sign up for a class in kayaking, ice skating, yoga, Pilates, cycling and more. Swim laps or take a water exercise class in the 50-meter pool. Play hockey or twirl on the ice during the public skating time on the ice arena. Drop in for a game of hockey, volleyball, basketball or indoor soccer. You can also swim and take fitness classes at the Salvador Perez Pool & Fitness Center and the Fort Marcy Complex.

Whether you're an avid fan of the great outdoors or someone who loves breaking a sweat in a recreation class, you'll find plenty of ways to enjoy recreation in Santa Fe.
