Want to fish? Take a peaceful walk or jog? Join in events such as the Water Lantern Festival? Go to Sandia Lakes Recreation Area then! Aptly named, this place affords its visitors a breathtaking view of the Sandia Mountains, and there are three lakes in which one can enjoy. Another plus? Indoor bathrooms placed throughout the park! There are several covered seating areas as well (perfect for a picnic, a first date, time with family, or an outdoor venue to use as an exercise start or stopping point), and PLENTY of parking. I recommend this place to New Mexico natives and visitors to the state as well.
We enjoyed a company picnic here. It was a beautiful evening in their pavilion with bathrooms, grass areas and playground, kitchen, and outdoor grills. Very clean and great views of the Sandia mountains! Very well maintained and reasonably priced for the event.
