Open Spaces


Your gaze can scan the horizon for miles and not see anything but wildlife and undeveloped land. Animals and plants thrive in their natural habitat, and you can explore on horseback or foot, often blazing your own trail. The value of Sacramento County's protected open space cannot be measured in dollars and cents. The recreational opportunities, aesthetics and tranquility of open land greatly add to our quality of life. Sacramento County is dedicated to preserving the wildlife and natural vegetation of open space for generations to come.
