Open space preserves are open to the public for your enjoyment. We strongly encourage you to come prepared for the outdoors.
SIERRA VISTA OPEN SPACE PRESERVE
The Open Space Authority strongly believes that connecting people to nature and outdoor spaces provides essential benefits related to physical and mental wellness. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, our open space preserves provided important places for the public to enjoy nature, along with modifications to protect the health and safety of our visitors and staff.
Everyone in our community deserves equitable access to nature, regardless of age or physical mobility. Providing equitable access to nature is important to us, and we want all visitors to have enjoyable experiences at our open spaces. Please visit our resources to find a nature adventure that works for you!
