historic neighborhood

Wells Park is a historic neighborhood located just north of downtown Albuquerque. Its current boundaries were established in 1979 by the newly formed Wells Park Neighborhood Association, which are 12th St. on the west, Highway 40 on the North, Mountain on the South and First street on the East. 



2022 Update: meetings are held via ZOOM and in person.

The Wells Park Neighborhood Association meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month (except July and December) at 6:00 pm. Due to construction at the Johnny Tapia Community Center, meetings will be held at Friends Meeting House (1600 5th St NW 87102) located at the corner of 5th and Bellamah until further notice.

Click here to join the monthly meeting via Zoom. 

The Annual Meeting is held on the last Tuesday of March (5:30pm-7:30pm), when we elect new board members. Pursuant to the updated City of Albuquerque Neighborhood Association Recognition Ordinance (NARO), WPNA can no longer require payment of dues to become a voting member of the association. However, as we use dues to help cover the costs of putting on our Annual Meeting and Board election, as well as to help fund other neighborhood events, we greatly appreciate and encourage any annual donations from our members. Our previous annual membership was $5 per member.

Registered neighborhood members also receive a FREE Family membership to Explora.
