Unidad Park ribbon cutting ceremony


A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate the completion of significant improvements at Unidad Community Park, 1500 E. Hadley Ave., will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2022.

Las Cruces City Council members, Mayor Ken Miyagishima, and City administrators will participate in the ceremony.

Altogether, $1.45 million in improvements have been made at Unidad Park. Improvements include the replacement of the wood structure at the park, new restrooms that are ADA compliant, new landscaping, and the installation of a splash pad.

The park improvements are part of the 2018 GO Bond Project. More information about $35.6 million in GO Bond improvements is available online at: https://www.las-cruces.org/1892/2018-General-Obligation-Bond-Projects.

Unidad Park was initially built in 2001 by community volunteers. All materials and labor to build the park were donated by city residents, businesses and organizations who wanted a park for Las Cruces children and their families to enjoy.

The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will be streamed live at YouTube.com/clctv20 and on the City’s Facebook page.
