The Parks and Recreation Department continues to plan, coordinate, implement, maintain and direct diversified year round, Village-wide parks and recreation programs including the management of the multi-purpose recreation center, municipal pool, Top Form Arena, Liam Knight pond and the various fields, parks, programs and open spaces.
Well, the winds of spring continue! We’ve been blown around pretty good this week and so may have downed limbs and branches – we do try to pick things up on Village property. However, if you spot something significant that we have missed, please call 899-8900 and let us know. I know there is concern about brush and trash build-up that occurs along Corrales Road (State Highway 448). The New Mexico State Department of Transportation owns Corrales Road and is responsible for keeping it maintained. However, volunteer organizations used to help clean up the road and I am making some calls to see if I can convince them to start up again. I will keep you updated.
This week, I participated in “Leadership Sandoval County 2018” as part of the Mayors’ Forum, along with Bernalillo Mayor Jack Torres and Rio Rancho Mayor Gregg Hull. It was very informative and served to highlight our shared concerns and goals. The Police Department, as part of their continuing education, received training on responding to missing persons cases (Amber, Brittany and Silver alerts). Also, Officer Rogers, who organized a spring break reading program, Books and Badges, hosted a pizza party at Corrales Elementary for the class who logged in the most reading hours. Way to go!
Again, it is supposed to be windy this weekend, so stay safe and let’s hope for some much-needed moisture! Jo Anne #allfeeds ... See MoreSee Less

Hello everybody – We knew it had to happen – it is after all, spring. There is a high wind advisory for today, Thursday the 12th of April. Some have predicted we may have winds up to 60 miles per hour. Please be aware of your surroundings when the winds start up and be especially cautious. For example, it may not be the right day to be under all those trees in La Entrada Park (or own your own property either). Please check the message on Next Door from Chief Martinez for more detailed information. Above all, be safe! Jo Anne Roake #allfeeds ... See MoreSee Less
Hello Village of Corrales and thank you for the advisory. We just moved to this great community this past fall and I’ve tried to join the Next Door community but for some reason the app does not find Corrales so I am unable to join. If anyone is able to help me with this I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you
