Thank you for taking some time out of your day to visit the Town of Estancia!
For more than 100 years, people have come to rest in the "Heart of New Mexico". Estancia (which means "resting place") is rich in history and character. Throughout recorded history, Estancia has been a popular stopping point for travelers, thanks to its clean spring-fed lake. The area has been historically associated with agriculture, including cattle ranching and farming. The Town of Estancia has made the visual attractiveness of the commercial district and preservation of a small-town atmosphere a high priority.
Estancia can be considered the area's most aggressive communities with respect to providing amenities to it's citizens. Estancia boasts an agricultural award-winning public library. Arthur Park, with it's lake, provides area residents and visitors with fishing, picnicking and other recreational opportunities. The town is the first community in the Estancia Valley to build an aquatic Center (swimming pool) and remains the only public pool in the county. Estancia is also home to the Torrance County Fairgrounds and rodeo arena, as well as the Annual Estancia Punkin Chunkin'. The town also hosts various summer park activities including an annual fireworks display and music festivals.
