It is known that the famous Feigenbaum-Coullet-Tresser period-doubling universality has a counterpart for area-preserving maps of $R^2$. A renormalization approach was used in [11] and [12] in a computer-assisted proof of the existence of a "universal'' area-preserving map $F_*$, that is, a map with orbits of all binary periods $2^k, k \in N$. In this paper, we consider infinitely renormalizable maps, which are maps on the renormalization stable manifold in some neighborhood of $F_*$, and study their dynamics.
For all such infinitely renormalizable maps in a neighborhood of the fixed point $F_*$, we prove the existence of a "stable'' invariant Cantor set $\l^\infty_F$ such that the Lyapunov exponents of $F |_{\l^\infty_F}$ are zero and whose Hausdorff dimension satisfies

$\text{dim}_H(\l_F^{\infty}) < 0.5324.$

We also show that there exists a submanifold, $W_\omega$, of finite codimension in the renormalization local stable manifold such that for all $F\in W_\omega$, the set $\l^\infty_F$ is "weakly rigid'': the dynamics of any two maps in this submanifold, restricted to the stable set $\l^\infty_F$, are conjugate by a bi-Lipschitz transformation, which preserves the Hausdorff dimension.
