Building Neighborhoods in Central New Mexico

The sculpture, "La Puerta del Sol," by the renowned artist, Armando Alvarez, sits at the base of El Cerro de Tomé, in Tomé Hill Park on the Camino Real (the Royal Road), in the northwest corner of Rio del Oro.  The artwork depicts the settling of New Mexico and the people who built the community we're part of today.   They were Native Americans and conquistadors; merchants and missionaries; soldiers and shepherds.  Many of their dreams were realized; not everything that happened to them was good.  But, pursuing their dreams together, they made good things happen.
