In the early 1980s, I had lunch in this park on a regular basis. I was working for an architect in downtown Albuquerque and my husband’s job, with a different architect, was further up toward the Heights. This was approximately in the middle. We’d bring leftovers, and maybe get a couple of cookies from the bakery that was across the street. There was also a small, independent bookstore with a nice section of children’s books. We liked looking at the books; I was pregnant at the time and like all first-time parents, we were just determined to do everything the Right Way.
The bakery and the bookstore are gone now, having at some point been replaced by a big CVS pharmacy.
