About the Property

The Board of County Commissioners at its April 26, 2016 Administrative meeting approved the acquisition and purchase of what is now the Arenal Open Space. The property is part of the former Swendson Dairy located in the South Valley on Arenal Road directly across from Rio Grande High School. This land had been identified in the PROS planning process as a very high priority by the community for county Open Space acquisition. All 29 acres will continue to be used for agricultural purposes to appropriately honor the farming heritage and spirit of the South Valley.
