Santa Fe Roadrunner at the Railyard Water Tower, New Mexico USA
New Mexico
Opened in 2008, Santa Fe's central park is becoming a favorite place to go. The city acquired a former railyard and later oversaw design, fundraising, and construction of the one-acre plaza and ten-acre park, including a performance green, climbing wall, playground, and bike and pedestrian trails. It is surrounded by museums, galleries, live-work studios, an elementary school, and a teen center. The public space celebrates the history, creativity, and diversity of the city.

More About New Mexico

New Mexico is a state located in the southwestern region of the United States. Inhabited by Native American populations for many centuries, it has also been part of the Imperial Spanish viceroyalty of New Spain, part of Mexico, and a U.S. territory. Among U.S. states, New Mexico has the highest percentage of Hispanics at 45% (2008 estimate), being descendants of Spanish colonists and recent immigrants from Latin America. It also has the third-highest percentage of Native Americans after Alaska and Oklahoma, and the fifth-highest total number of Native Americans after California, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Texas. The tribes represented in the state consist of mostly Navajo and Pueblo peoples. As a result, the demographics and culture of the state are unique for their strong Spanish, Mexican, and Native American cultural influences. At a population density of 16 per square mile, New Mexico is the sixth most sparsely inhabited U.S. state.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_mexico]
