10BEST Says

Things to Do with Kids: The UNM Duck Pond is such a wonderful escape right in the heart of the city, and best part of all - it's free! The only small trouble is parking, but the parking garage near the Fine Arts Center is not too far, and your best option. Kids love the tranquility of the Duck Pond, with its bridge that goes right over the water, its sloping grassy banks, its big trees and boulders that surround it, and of course, the ducks. It's a great place to take your family for a picnic, or if you didn't have time to pack food, the Student Union is close by, with a variety of food vendors to choose from. It's open dawn to dusk seven days a week.


Insider Tips

Local Expert Says:

Things to Do with Kids: "The noon hour during the week will be more crowded with the hustle and bustle of students getting to classes and eating lunch there. It is a more family oriented environment later in the afternoon or on the weekends."
