The Association administers a Protective Covenant of land use regulations on about 1,930 private and commercial properties, but also owns and operates a variety of community facilities. Rancho Santa Fe is home to one of California’s oldest adobe homes. The nearly 200-year-old adobe sits on a 27-acre property known as the Osuna Ranch.
Covenant residents may enjoy 68 acres of beautiful open space and nature at the Rancho Santa Fe Arroyo property. Located on the southeastern boundary of the Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe and along the San Dieguito River, the Arroyo provides a natural open space buffer from developments located further to the east.
Youth sports are an important facet of life for many families with children and teens in the Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe. Two private sports fields are maintained in the Covenant for the exclusive use of residents and their guests. The Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe boasts a unique and extensive network of private trails. Nearly 60 miles of equestrian and pedestrian trails are used exclusively by Covenant residents and their guests.
