Albuquerque – Southwest – Zip Codes: 87105 and 87121
The Southwest Valley is located near the Rio Grande River south of Central Avenue (Route 66) with many trees and green pastures. This area includes the South Valley and the Southwest Mesa. The beautiful Rio Grande Bosque is a band of life in the Rio Grande Valley with tall trees, small farms, and green pastures in direct contrast to the surrounding desert terrain. Many homes are older with deep family roots that may go back generations. There are some larger parcels with rural open zoning that allows for mobile and manufactured homes. Newer subdivisions are located up on the Mesa with larger horse properties down in the lower “valley farms”.
