Open Space and Mountain Parks Master Plan
For nearly 120 years, generations of Boulder residents have created an innovative public land legacy in building the city’s 45,630-acre open space system. Help us to continue and improve on that proud legacy by creating an inclusive, community-based master to guide the management of our community’s open space over the next decade and beyond.
The Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) Master Plan will shape the City of Boulder’s approach to future stewardship questions, such as: How to continue conservation of natural, cultural and scenic areas while also providing enjoyable visitor experiences, how to address population growth with increased visitation, and how the city will make its natural areas more resilient amid climate change. Read our System Overview Report to review the state of your Boulder open space. Share your input now. Sign up for email updates on the Master Plan.
Community feedback during our first engagement window for the master plan– which will end on Friday, March 30 – will help the city to create preliminary focus areas and potential strategies, which will be developed and refined through additional community engagement windows.
