78th Street Heritage Farm
The Heritage Farm consists of 79 acres adjacent to residential areas, along the south side of Northeast 78th Street just west of Northeast 25th Avenue. The site has a long history of farming and agricultural research.
In 2010, Clark County adopted a master plan calling for the farm to be an accessible agricultural, educational and recreational community-based asset that will reflect the area's history and provide a healthy and sustainable environment.
