                  Open Space works to acquire and protect the natural character of land designated as major public Open Space in the 1988 revised City of Albuquerque Comprehensive Plan.

                  These lands, which comprise more than 29,000 acres in and around Albuquerque, are managed to:

                  • Conserve natural and archaeological resources
                  • Provide opportunities for outdoor education
                  • Provide a place for low impact recreation
                  • Define the edges of the urban environment.

                  The Open Space Advisory Board

                  The Open Space Advisory Board consists of citizens that assist the Open Space Division with the implementation of the Division's Mission.
