We had some extra time, so my family and ventured to the pecos river. There was a river beach, which was free to swim in, a floatind river bridge with a nice playground on the otherside, a snowcone shop, a river tour boat, and rental paddle boats. Nothing crazy, but was a nice afternoon in the summer.

A great place to cool off from the mid day sun. We stopped there for a quick picnic under one of the many shaded benches and watched families swimming. A nice family place.

There is a nice playground. Park areas on both sides of river, very clean. It turned out to be a great place for a wedding. Gazebos for shade, some trees, which for New Mexico is great!
