Add to plan Remove from plan

A ten minute movie begins the tour. Exhibits on the history of the fire prevention program, black bears, forest health, fire ecology, wildland/urban interface and fire safety are offered. The Park is a two acre stroll with handicap accessibility through the replicated climate zones of New Mexico. Smokey's grave is located in a serene corner of the Park, much like the Capitan Mountains where he was found. Spring,Summer and Fall offer a variety of native birds and wildflowers.
There is a playground for kids with a fire tower, climbing wall, fire engine and swings. Adjacent to the playground are picnic tables and restrooms for the visitor's convenience.
