Giant recreation world in New Mexico begins construction
NEW MEXICO — A giant recreation world for giant sandhill cranes and giant tundra bears is now in the works in New Mexican State.
The $3 billion, 3,700-acre Giant Recreation World will be located in the town of Green Valley in the Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico, which is about 90 miles (145 kilometers) south of the city of El Paso.
The park was developed by a group of New Mexican companies including AEP Enterprises, Tundra and Giant, and is being managed by the State Parks and Wildlife Department.
The park will also include a mountain biking trail and a visitor center.
AEP Enterprises will manage the park, which includes two new, high-altitude, multi-use trails, said Julie Wrenn, a spokeswoman for AEP.
The Giant Recreation world will be the largest and most technologically advanced outdoor recreation facility in the United States, said Gary Sussman, a spokesman for Tundrap and Giant.
This is a first for Giant and it’s going to be a great showcase for the industry, he said.
The facility will include an indoor and outdoor playground, and the giant sand hogs, giant tortoises, giant cranes, giant turtlenecks, and giant geese will be able to compete for the largest trophies in the world, Sussmans said.
