Rolling hills, miles of walking trails, shimmering lagoons – these beautiful open spaces give residents a break from their daily routines and attract visitors year round. The City of Carlsbad has made a strong commitment to preserving open space to ensure an excellent quality of life for our residents.



In 1986 residents voted to approve the Growth Management Plan, which ensures ample land will be set aside as permanent open space. Current projections are that when all the major new development in the city is complete, at least 38 percent of the city will be open space.

A Sense of Community


For the past two decades, Carlsbad has been growing and developing under the guidance of a plan established in 1994, the city’s General Plan. Today, Carlsbad is at a new crossroads. The issues facing the future of Carlsbad are no longer focused on guiding development of large land areas, but are related more to protecting and enhancing the quality of life that the community has worked hard to create. This unity makes Carlsbad one of the best areas to live in California.
