What & Why?
Regional Parks Department, in partnership with the Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, is proposing a regional park and open space preserve on properties that include portions of Mark West, Porter and Mill Creeks. The Open Space District currently owns 822.5 acres including open meadows, oak woodlands, and evergreen forests.
In January 2017, the Board of Supervisors authorized the acquisition of an additional 47 acres to add to the property. This is the fifth piece of land that has been purchased for Mark West Creek Regional Park and Preserve.
This property is planned for transfer to Regional Parks, and plans for interim public access are being prepared. Regional Parks and the District are actively negotiating property acquisition to improve future public access.
