There are especially a lot of people living in Sandia Park who work in the sciences (57.69%), management occupations (12.82%), and sales jobs (10.26%).

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Sandia Park has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.

Setting & Lifestyle

Because of many things, Sandia Park is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Sandia Park really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Sandia Park perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Sandia Park has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Sandia Park a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

One downside of living in Sandia Park, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 37.83 minutes every day commuting to work.

Sandia Park is a very car-oriented town. 100.00% of residents commute to work in a private automobile rather than by other means, such as public transit, bicycling, or walking. This is because Sandia Park is a small town , and most people who live here have to drive out of town for work, and the town population is not large nor dense enough to support an extensive public transportation system. Sandia Park has a lot of rural roads, and houses can be far apart. Many residents drive out of town for regular shopping trips as well.

Being a small town, Sandia Park does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
