Preserving Folsom’s Open Space, Historical Resources

Nearly three acres of land at High­way 50 and Folsom Boulevard has been preserved forever as public open space. The site maintains the natural beauty of an important gateway to the City, and preserves natural vegetation, heritage oaks and historical resources.

The land was previously planned for commercial development before it was donated to the City of Folsom this fall. The site provides views of historical sluice diggings—deep trenches that were used in the early 1900s during the process of extract­ing gold from the nearby creeks.

The City has a long and proud history of protecting and maintaining open space. As the season brings cooler temperatures and color changes in leaves, residents are encouraged to explore the many open spaces and trails that make Folsom Distinctive by Nature.
