Santa Fe County’s Open Space, Trails and Parks Program vision 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 program’s mission is to provide innovative leadership in local land management and conservation that enhances the quality of life for County residents, provides access to public lands for unique outdoor experiences, advances community stewardship through partnerships and effectively leverages community investments in the Open Space, Trails and Parks Program. The Open Space, Trails and Parks Program manages 6,700 acres of open space, 18 parks, and 60 miles of trails. The program includes planning, capital improvements, maintenance, and volunteer activities to manage properties for the use and enjoyment of Santa Fe County residents and visitors. The program also collaborates with private, non-profit and government agencies to meet program goals. Recent accomplishments include promoting beaver coexistence and wetland restoration, implementing a wildlife-friendly forest thinning experiment; acquiring two new open space properties; finalizing the design and property acquisition for the extension of the Santa Fe River Greenway Trail; and facilitating the 2023 Northern New Mexico Master Naturalist course.
