Green Space

For generations, the land around Black Diamond has been mined and the forests harvested. Now, a new chapter protects forests and green space for eternity, creating an important legacy for our kids.

Environmental stewardship is in our DNA. Back when forestry giant Plum Creek Timber first began to consider selling its properties around Black Diamond in the early 1990’s, preservation of green space was a key component for a variety of environmental advocates and local governments.


The Black Diamond Urban Growth Area Agreement set aside 1,600 acres. Within TenTrails, we’ve created an additional 500 acres of green space and recreation, including plazas, playfields, playgrounds, trails, amphitheaters, gardens, pea patches, natural areas, interpretive centers, camp grounds, and picnic areas.
