NEWELL OPEN SPACE PRESERVE |
July 7, 2014
On December 1999, Jack and Bernice Newell granted 640 acres to the city of American Canyon to be used for the public good excluding development and hunting. It was another 14 years before the public had a chance to use the property due to access problems. While it's still under improvement, the public can
now enjoy the approximately 7-9 miles of trails.
