From the moment we turn onto University from the freeway, we are so happy to be going to our home in Mesa Del Sol. All the stresses of the day leave as we drive up and down “rattlesnake road.”
We are surrounded by the best neighbors in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County. You take your dog out for a walk and you need to plan at least an hour because you will stop and talk to all the neighbors along the way. This is how you get caught up on all the latest at MDS. We have never lived in a community where everyone knows their neighbors. We are more than neighbors, we are family.
During the summer months, on select Saturday nights, we have outdoor movie night. Oh, and by the way, it’s the biggest outdoor movie screen in Albuquerque. There is fun to be had by people of all ages for free. Oh, and we are right across the street from Albuquerque Studios. Everyone remembers Breaking Bad, right?! 🙂
Our amenities include a private neighborhood pool, beautiful parks, a gym, a really, really nice dog park, and a 5K hiking trail. As we move forward, the trails will grow to 22 miles, encircling all of MDS. When you are out on the hiking trail, you can see all five mountain ranges. Where else in Albuquerque can you see this? We don’t need to buy concert tickets. We sit out on our back porch, or at a park, and listen to whoever is playing at the Amphitheater.
Come join us!
Wayne & Annette Bishop (Mayor and First Lady of Mesa Del Sol)
