Los Rios Neighborhood Information



The above lots are in the Rio Rancho Public Schools district. The elementary school, grades K-5, is Enchanted Hills. This elementary school is just west of the Highway 528 and Corrales Road intersection, on Obregon Road. The middle school is Rio Rancho Middle School for grades 6, 7, 8, and 9. Cleveland High School is for grades 10 through 12.



To preserve our wonderful views in this development, all utilities are underground. Electricity is available everywhere. Each lot requires its own water well. These wells are anywhere from 170 to 410 feet as of 2007. The water is excellent but on the hard side. Not having to pay city water bills is a great part of living in Los Rios. Each home also needs it own septic tank, but percolation is not a problem here.



All roads are dirt and are regularly maintained by the City of Rio Rancho. The only paved street through the area is Rio Vista Drive. Most people here prefer this rural atmosphere.



The Los Rios neighborhood is almost exclusively up-scale southwestern. There is a pleasant mix of flat and pitched roofs, along with traditional "pueblo" styling of vigas, gated courtyards and desert-colored stucco. Because the area slopes gently towards the Rio Grande River, all lots have a breathtaking view of the Sandia Mountains, the Albuquerque city lights and the trees of the bosque (cottonwoods and other trees lining the river area). During the holidays, luminarias and chile ristras are everywhere. Even though there are no homeowners' associations or architectural control committees, Los Rios has style and is truly an enchanting place to live.

Every October, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta fills the sky above the Los Rios Neighborhood with color and excitement.

This photo, taken in 1999, is looking southeast from Rio Arriba. October is a wonderful time in the Rio Grande valley. The aroma of roasting green chile fills the air, the cottonwoods turn yellow in the river bosque, and the crop of New Mexico's own Dixon apples appear in the stores. The days are still warm, but the nights are getting cooler. It is truly an enchanting place to live.
