The 30 acres of open space, which will never be developed, are held in a conservation easement controlled by the Arroyo Park Owners Association. Arroyo Park abuts Taos Pueblo land that is also protected from development.
Archaeological Sites and Petroglyphs
There are three prehistoric & historic petrolglyph sites in the area. One site, previously recorded by the Taos Archaeological Society, is located on a basalt outcrop of cliffs on the west side of the Arroyo Seco and just outside the Arroyo Park project area. The others are on basalt cliffs and in basalt boulders at the base of the cliffs on the east and west sides of the Arroyo Seco within the Arroyo Park project area. Prehistoric petroglyphs appear of the northern Rio Grande style and include anthromorphic, zoomorphic, geometric, and linear motifs. Historic petroglyphs include letters and Hispanic names. Also the area consists of archaeological sites with prehistoric chipped stone artifact scatters. The predominance of core flakes may suggest that the sites are Anasazi in origin.
