Open Space Authority has purchased HISTORIC property in the Santa Teresa Foothills


The Santa Teresa Ridge parcel, marked by unique rock outcroppings and extensive valley views, sits on the southern edge of the Santa Teresa Foothills in the City of San José. Located above the Greystone neighborhood near the Boulder Ridge Golf Course, the former agricultural parcel is rich in Santa Clara Valley history including the Greystone Quarry site.

“The Open Space Authority is excited to protect this history-rich land in the Santa Teresa Foothills,” said Andrea Mackenzie, General Manager. “This acquisition brings us another step closer to creating an interconnected system of open space, parks, and trails and will provide new opportunities to connect communities with nature.”

“It has a very colorful history,” said Norbert Pfeiffer, Jr. of the family property where he was raised. “We were all over the hills, hiking and biking as kids. It will be an added value to the community. It’s time to let someone else enjoy it.” Please see our jurisdiction map for the Santa Teresa Foothills property location.
