Join the Celebration 7:45 AM this Friday, May 1st, at the Tornillo Trailhead in the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park.

After 13 years with no reliable water during the growing season, John Sproul, Manager of the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park, plans to turn the valve to release water from the Bustamante Waste Water Treatment Plant through the new pipeline into the Park at 8 AM.  

Join us for this historic event!

Go HERE for a map.

Directions from I-10:  Take the Americas Ave. (Loop 375 South) exit (Exit 34B) and head southwest towards the Zaragoza Bridge.  Cross North Loop Rd. (FM76) and take the onramp onto Loop 375.  Stay in the right-hand lane of Loop 375 and exit immediately at Exit 47 for Alameda Ave., Socorro Rd. and Pan American Dr.  Proceed across both Alameda Ave. and Socorro Rd.  At Pan American Dr., turn left.  After driving approximately 1.1 mile on Pan American, you'll cross a bridge over the Playa Drain.  At 1.5 miles, you'll reach a second bridge, which crosses the Riverside Canal right before the gated entrance to the Jonathan Rogers and Roberto Bustamante water-treatment plants.  To get to the Park itself, cross the bridge, turn left onto the gravel levee road and proceed for about 0.75 miles.  You'll be at the northeast corner of the park, at the Tornillo Trailhead.
