The park is one of several that are connected to a computerized irrigation system that is controlled from the Parks Division headquarters. The city spent about $20 million on a parks improvement bond from 2008 that included installation of better sprinkler heads and controllers in many parks. A 2012 bond project also paid for irrigation changes. Clyde Mueller/The New Mexican
