The RGHLP creates a legacy for future generations through
the preservation of the rich agricultural heritage of the San Luis
Valley Rio Grande corridor. Through the support of an innovative
multi-use “park” designed to expand skills and knowledge of sustainable food projects via
public economic development, opportunities abound to build community
and involvement, service to under-served populations, and the nurturing
of local arts and culture.
This integrated concept evokes the traditional model of a business park, where multiple tenants operate under a common management structure, and exemplifies a public park through the preservation of an open space for use by tourists and local communities alike, making it an economically self-sustaining agritourism destination.
The Rio Grande Healthy Living Park will feature:
a working farm for education and research with opportunities for individuals, families and children to grow their own food,
a year-round local food market supplied by greenhouses which could also provide fresh food to area schools,
botanical gardens and a horticultural area,
a commercial kitchen that will provide economic opportunities for local food makers and caterers.
live events (concerts, parties, weddings, gatherings).
walking trails for
exercise, wildlife viewing and connecting our communities on the east
and west banks of the Rio Grande by way of a pedestrian bridge over the
an attractive entrance to Alamosa that celebrates our agricultural heritage.
