There's something very romantic about parks. They're popular trysting places in real life, books and films. Amelia E. White Park on Santa Fe's historic Eastside, is a romantic oasis minutes from downtown Santa Fe. It's probably the most intimate public park in Santa Fe. Steal away at dusk for an in-town picnic for two, or come out and stargaze after the sun goes down. The park (once parkj of El Delirio, the estate of the locally infamous White Sisters), is an urban gem. The two socialites held legendary parties in the 1920s and 30s. Martha passed away in 1937. In 1966, Amelia White deeded the land to the city to the city with the stipulation that it be used "only for the purpose of a public park ... and that flowers and vegetation will be cultivated and irrigated." Planning a small wedding? The picturesque arbor here is the perfect spot.

- Parks: "Once the Santa Fe Trail opened in 1821, settlers came across the 1,200 mile trail starting in Franklin MO. Some of the wagon wheel ruts are still visible along the trail. If you look carefully, you can still see some in Amelia E. White Park."
