Silver City has an interesting downtown park, a literal ditch.  "The creek below was once Silver City’s Main Street, but summer flooding caused the city’s planners to rethink their strategy. Now a beautiful and serene park, Big Ditch’s towering trees, prolific foliage, and long promenade are a favorite of locals and visitors of all ages."  http://silvercitytourism.org/destinations/big-ditch-park/

 

May or September look like good times to ride here. May is the lowest month for rainfall. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver_City,_New_Mexico
