About the Property

This property, informally known as the Stark Urban Open Space for the previous owner, is the county’s first venture into an agricultural open space that is truly, undeniably urban at the same time. Surrounded on three sides by dense residential properties and commercial retail on the fourth, this half acre site was acquired by Bernalillo County Open Space in 2018 and is currently the department’s Smallest Property. But what it lacks in size it makes up for in potential as the property will be used for workshops, demonstrations, and other educational opportunities to practice water-smart gardening, composting, seed-saving, and so many more. While it is currently closed to the public until the site plan is finalized and construction finished, the department invites local individuals and communities to share their insight for the property’s future.

Planning and Management

A site plan draft was proposed to the participants of the October 30 International Urban Agriculture Community Meeting at the Jerry Cline Tennis Center. To ask about or submit input about the Stark property plan, please contact the Open Space department.

Until the site planning and construction has finished, however, the property will remain closed to the public for safety concerns.
