Improvements at the Alameda Park Zoo

At right, Shelby the Lemur practices his yoga poses in the new, roomy exhibit that 2 lemur friends share.

The alligator has a new location. The new playground should be installed within the next month, and construction has begun for the new walk-through aviary. Come visit your furry friends at the zoo.

Below, a bobcat stops to pose for a photo on a crisp Alamogordo winter morning. With his warm coat, he seems completely content!

New Playground at the Griggs Sports Complex

The new playground at the Griggs Sports Complex was recently installed by the City of Alamogordo Parks Division and is now ready for use. The new playground is located between the two four-plex baseball fields. This playground is one of ten (10) new ADA-accessible playgrounds that have been installed by the Parks Division in the past four years. The Alameda Park Zoo will be getting a new playground installed in early 2008 to replace the old playground near the mountain lion exhibit. Funding for these new playgrounds was made possible by a combination of the Quality of Life Bond Refinancing Series 1994 and 2000, as well through the City's General Fund. The installation of the new playgrounds as well as the development of four new neighborhood parks continues to improve the quality of life for the citizens and families that reside in the City of Alamogordo.
