After a short 25-minute drive from bustling Las Cruces, you’ll arrive at this quiet park along the Rio Grande.

Leasburg Dam State Park offers peace and relaxation, a beautiful cactus garden, several hiking trails, and opportunities for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and birding. Night sky programs are very popular at this park, which features an observatory.

Park Elevation 3,962 ft

The Observatory is only open once a month for special events.
