Mission Statement

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 28,000 acres in and around Albuquerque, are managed to:

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

The Open Space Visitor Center's mission is to enhance the connection between the people in our community and the place that is Open Space or public lands.

Description

The Open Space Visitor Center, nestled at the west edge of the Rio Grande bosque, is an unexpected retreat into the natural beauty of Albuquerque as well as a facility providing exhbiits, gallery shows, annual events for the whole family, programs about the interface of the urban and natural world, demonstration gardens, wildlife fields and wetland. Education opportunities are available for school children.
