Highland Park Parking Lot/Description

From Masq

Highland Park -- Parking Lot -- Albuquerque

 Sedate rows of parking spaces mark the entrance area of the park; new pavement has replaced the asphalt damaged by the earthquakes. Islands of greenery are formed by flower beds and long stretches of grass. A few cottonwood trees seem to have managed to weather the earthquakes, leaning over the lot and providing shade for the cars. A metal sign which reads "Park Hours -- 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. No Loitering!" hangs slightly askew on a pole and is ignored.

 The pool, damaged beyond repair, has been permanently shut down and the building demolished. A small community center has been erected in its stead, a board affixed to one of its walls advertising various events, classes, and activities. A poster sponsored by the City of Albuquerque Parks and Recreation Department describes the Sandia Swimming Pool, located just beyond the campus of Sandia High School, at 800-900 North Eubank Blvd.
