Rancho Potrero

In 1993, the City, CRPD and the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority cooperated to acquire a 326-acre area located south of Potrero Road in the southwest corner of the Conejo Valley. This area, which is bordered on the east by the National Park Service’s Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa Native American Indian Culture Center, includes grasslands, coastal sage scrub with the Conejo rock plant association, and riparian habitats. A Specific Plan was approved for the property in 2010 by the City, which identified 304 acres of the property as natural open space, and 20 acres next to Lynn Road set aside for public equestrian center use. Trails at Rancho Potrero connect to the Dos Vientos Open Space and the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. On clear days, the coastline and Channel Islands can be seen from the old Olympia Farms site, which is located mid-elevation on the property and still has graded pad areas from the previous use.
