12. El Rancho Plaza
Sandia Ranch was one of many historic features on Walk 12. Unfortunately...
Bernalillo County commissioners agreed unanimously last week to authorize negotiations for
17 acres in the North Valley – once home to the Sandia Ranch hospital – for about $1.9 million.
The plan is to demolish the buildings, or what’s left of them, and make the land available for
use by the Parks and Recreation Department. An aquatic center, agricultural demonstration
site or something similar are among the possibilities.
