The Veterans Memorial is located in the Luis Garcia
Park just west of the East Mountain Library. The
Memorial itself consists of a sweeping rock wall in the
shape of a crescent. The wall starts low on each end

The Luis Garcia Park is located on the north side of NM Highway 333 (Old Route 66) just west of the East Mountain Library. The park was completed in September of
2008. It is named after Luis Garcia, a resident of the Village of Tijeras who was tragically slain in a shooting in Sandia Park in 1999 along with his two friends Matthew Hunt and Kevin Shirley.
The Santo Nino Church was constructed around 1912 as a Roman Catholic chapel. It is registered on both the State Register of Cultural Properties (1977), and the National Register of Historic Places. In the early 1900s, the Roman Catholic Church acquired the property on which the Santo Nino church now stands.
Incorporation in 1973 brought many important improvements to the Village. A four member Planning and Zoning Commission was created to manage land
use and development. Other services to the
community include a Motor Vehicle Division (known by some Albuquerque residents as the friendliest and worth the extra few miles MVD around), an all
volunteer Fire Department equipped with a station, a full size fire truck, a mini-pumper, and an emergency medical fire truck. Our Village Hall, located on Camino Municipal, adjacent to the Tijeras Creek, was refurbished in 2007 and is as efficient as it is attractive.
