Ridgecrest: An Oasis of Greenery in Albuquerque
There's a reason one of the streets in this community is named "Parkland Circle": grassy green lawns are common, both in the parks and in front yards of several homes. Ridgecrest is a neighborhood where you can find vegetation adding a splash of color to the landscape. And the views of the mountains peeking through the trees are simply dazzling.
In addition to the beautiful landscaping, Ridgecrest boasts an ideal location just a few minutes from the University of New Mexico, Central Avenue, the Albuquerque International Airport, and city attractions like the fairgrounds and Old Town. You'll love living here!
