Open Space, Trails and Parks Program

Open Space and Trails Planning

The vision of the Open Space and Trails Program is to sustainably manage and conserve a vibrant network of cultural, historical, recreational, and natural community resources that inspire a deep sense of regional identity and stewardship among current and future generations. The Open Space and Trails Program aims to develop open space and trails management based on integration with existing regulations and requirements as well as cooperative efforts between private, non-profit and government agencies. In total the program manages 6,610 acres of open lands, 18 parks, and 60 miles of trails, and encompasses planning, capital improvements, maintenance, and volunteer opportunities towards the management of these properties for the use and enjoyment of Santa Fe County residents and visitors.

The Open Space and Trails Program is currently working on a number of plans for Open Space, Trails and Parks properties. Check back often for the most recent updates!
