Alvarado Gardens Neighborhood

Let's Bring Light to Our Neighborhood

Luminarias are an annual tradition in Albuquerque — this year we'd like to invite you to join your neighbors in lighting up our neighborhood!

We will be offering a drive-thru pickup of luminaria supplies at La Puerta de Los Niños (3001 Trellis NW) from 1-3PM on Saturday, December 18th.

We will provide enough supplies for 10 luminarias per kit, which will include:

  • 10 bags
  • 10 candles
  • Sand (please bring your own container to hold approx. 1/2 gallon of sand)

We ask that everyone wear a mask and are suggesting a $10 donation for the luminaria supplies, which will support the neighborhood. To minimize contact, we've set up the option to pay your donation online. If you prefer, you can also make your donation at the site on the day of the event. 

Happy Holidays to everyone!

Fall 2021 Cleanup

Thank you to all who participated in our neighborhood cleanup Saturday morning September 25!

Over a dozen energetic souls pulled weeds along Veranda and where the Duranes Lateral crosses Candelaria and Campbell, tidied up medians and bulb-outs along Candelaria, cleared out storm drain gratings, cleaned up trash along the ditch, cleared out growth that was obstructing bike lanes, and tidied up the area around the Kiosk which the Neighborhood Association will now maintain at the foot of Candelaria, all the way down at the ditch.

And a special thank you to workers from the COA Solid Waste Department who whisked it all away. What a difference these efforts make!
