Acequia de Corrales located just north of Alameda Blvd. on Corrales Road, near the Bosque Trail creates its own peaceful world. The retail center was designed as a contextual response to the North Valley and as a transitional environment mediating between the commercial strip and the Bosque. The landscaping of the patio meanders between the buildings becoming more natural as it transitions into the Bosque. The center serves bicyclists, joggers, bird watchers, dog walkers and horseback riders who enjoy the rural feel of the plaza from a commercially plentiful center.
