ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque-area state park has grown by 12 acres.

The Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District’s board has designated a parcel known locally as “Dog Biscuit Hill” as part of Rio Grande Valley State Park.

The parcel is a popular access point to the Bosque and it’s been designated the Patrick J. Baca Open Space Unit.

The new unit of the state park will be retained and owned by the conservancy district. It will be maintained and managed for conservation, education, and recreation by the city of Albuquerque under policies of the Rio Grande Valley State Park Management Plan and Joint Powers Agreement.
