Land Preservation

The Mission of Garth Road Preservation (GRP) is to foster the conservation of open space and our countryside, celebrating the traditions of Virginia steeplechase racing and using these functions to support benevolence in our community.

In 2019, the property at Foxfield was placed under a conservation easement with the Albemarle County Easement Authority, protecting the land for the future.

Conservation easements are an integral part of our community, protecting rural lands from development and preserving natural and cultural resources.

The role of Foxfield racing LLC, through an operating agreement with GRP, is to oversee and manage the races, maintain the property and leverage the property for the benefit of the wider community.
