Open space reserve

An open space reserve (also called open space preserve, open space reservation, and green space) is an area of protected or conserved land or water on which development is indefinitely set aside.

The purpose of an open space reserve may include the preservation or conservation of a community or region's rural natural or historic character; the conservation or preservation of a land or water area for the sake of recreational, ecological, environmental, aesthetic, or agricultural interests; or the management of a community or region's growth in terms of development, industry, or natural resources extraction. Open space reserves may be urban, suburban, or rural; they may be actual designated areas of land or water, or they may be zoning districts or overlays where development is limited or controlled to create undeveloped areas of land or water within a community or region. They may be publicly owned or owned by non-profit or private interests.

A certain amount of overlap occurs with similar planning and conservation terms. Protected areas are open space reserves in which certain resources indigenous to the landscape are protected as opposed to conserved. Urban open space specifically refers to open space reserves within an urban setting; such may include natural landscapes or manicured urban parkland. Greenways are linear open space reserves, linear corridors that span interconnected open space reserves, or linear chains of connected open space reserves. A green belt is a general area of open space surrounding an urban area. Green infrastructure is the total mass and viability of undeveloped, natural, and agricultural land and waterways, protected or not protected, within a particular community or region. Nature reserves and wildlife refuges are areas of open space set aside for the sake of protecting non-human species. National parks, state parks, and municipal parks, recreation areas, and reservations are types of open space reserves managed by government agencies for the primary purpose of passive or active human enjoyment. National forests, state forests, and municipal forests are types of open space reserves set aside for the primary purpose of forest conservation. Flood control projects and protected ecological research areas may also be considered open space reserves secondary to their primary purpose.

There is growing evidence that open space is unequally distributed based on race and class, particularly in the US state of California, leading to concerns regarding Open Space Accessibility in California and other areas.[1]

The City of Carlsbad set aside valuable open space as part of its award winning habitat management plan to protect the local environment.  The Rancho La Costa Habitat Conservation Area is managed by the Center for National Lands Management.  This is an area that we call Denk Mountain. It’s part of our Rancho La Costa Habitat Conservation Area. It’s actually a 1400 acre preserve that runs from El Camino Real all the way out to Elfin Forest - a really large piece of land probably the size of about Balboa Park. This open space preserve was set aside in about 2002. This area was primarily set aside for the Coastal California Gnatcatcher, which we have 10 or 15 pair every year. But it also is a wildlife corridor that connects Escondido and Elfin Forest out to Carlsbad and we have a wildlife undercrossing and we tend to have a lot of deer, bobcat and coyote that are very common here. We look at seasonal patterns and we look for different species. Some of these animals you can tell which ones they are each time they go through so you know if it’s the same animal or a different animal. Our primary job really is to keep an eye on the preseve and we get a lot of users. It has 6 or 7 miles of trail so we spend a lot of time maintaining trails, talking to our users. We have a mixed user group of horseback riders, mountain bike riders, joggers. What’s really neat about this area is a lot of the history. First, a big portion of it is part of a Spanish land grant from many many years ago and the vegetation and the habitat has hardly ever been disturbed. The one thing that we had on this mountain were mine shafts. They used to mine copper. I think this is an amazing asset to Carlsbad and the quality of life. There’s so many people that are into fitness, in addition, for all the folks that enjoy outdoors and wildlife. You get a huge sample here. It’s such a big open space and the trails meander right into the hillside and fit real well into the ecosystem. And on any given day you can have a really enjoyable hike or bike.
