Adler/Fingru Open Space
The Adler/Fingru Open Space property historically was used for both dryland and irrigated crop production and grazing. Boulder County owns a 50% interest in the property while the City of Louisville and City of Lafayette each own a 25% interest. The land was purchased in 2001 at a cost $2.3 million and consists of 55.7 acres.
Adler/Fingru Open Space forms a visible buffer between the eastern edge of Louisville on the west side and developed areas in Lafayette on the east side. It is a valuable riparian habitat, and the joint ownership between the cities of Lafayette and Louisville and Boulder County is intended to preserve the site as an agricultural resource.
The property is under agricultural lease, therefore access to the public is limited.
