Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park

Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park is New Mexico’s newest State Park. Opened in 2008, the park is located along the western bank of the Rio Grande southwest of the town of Mesilla. The heart of the park is 52 acres of Rio Grande floodplain known as the ”Old Refuge;” the total park acreage is about 945 acres of both wetlands and Chihuahuan Desert. The park will present many opportunities to enjoy and learn about wildlife. The goals of the park are conservation, education, and restoration: protection of natural and cultural resources; education of the public about the resources; and restoration of the original environment.
