History and Future
When the citizens of Santa Fe came together to plan the future of the Railyard, they planned an area that will celebrate and embrace history, the arts, culture, landscape and environment. The Railyard Master Plan was created.
When the revitalization of the Railyard is complete, existing studios, galleries, museums and community organizations will be complemented by live-in artist studios, a permanent structure for the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market, a cinema, and more than 13 acres of open space that includes a park, plaza and pedestrian promenade.
A trail for pedestrians and cyclists will run along the acequia. Trains will continue to arrive and debark from the depot. The Railyard will practice water harvesting and use other innovative, environmentally responsible systems.
The Santa Fe Railyard Community Corporation (SFRCC) is a non-profit organization responsible for the implementation of the Railyard Master Plan. SFRCC and the Trust for Public Land (TPL), among others, are working to develop this community asset with the support of the City of Santa Fe, the State of New Mexico, and the Governor’s Economic Development Initiative.
