Welcome to the website of A Park Above, Inc., a non-profit 501c3 ALL volunteer organization that was created to assist and support the efforts of the City of Rio Rancho’s Park and Recreation to build and maintain A PARK ABOVE.

All donations are for the Perpetual Fund, to help repair, replace or change any future park equipment!  As a 501c3 non profit, we are in the position to obtain funds through grants and donations made available only to non profits.

Perhaps a buddy day, plays, movies and scheduled educational programs will be held in the amphitheater.

A Park Ambassador has gone through a 2 day certification class and background check as you are dealing with children. You will help operate the wheelchair swings, keep children off the fence and walls, keeping all visitors safe and assisting in dispersing the crowd if a park visitor has an emotional episode. It is an HONOR to be a Park Ambassador! Please reach out to Madalyn at 505-219-5684  Please sign up on the “Contact” page and we will be in touch!
