Sonoma County Regional Parks is planning for renovations
and considering new features for Maxwell
Farms Regional Park in Sonoma and invites community members to share
their ideas at a Jan. 14 workshop. The session is an opportunity for Sonoma
Valley residents to help shape this popular park by recommending amenities and
Parks is updating the park's master plan as a guide for future improvements,
which would be undertaken as funding becomes available. The 80-acre park now
includes soccer and baseball fields, a playground, a skate park, picnic areas,
tennis and volleyball courts, and 2.5 miles
of nature trails. The park's original master plan was created in 1986 and
amended in the mid-1990's to add some of these amenities as well as the Valley
of the Moon Boys and Girls Club facility.
The Jan. 14 workshop starts at 6:30 p.m. in the
Discovery Room at the Boys and Girls Club, which is inside the park at 100 Verano Ave.
Additional workshops are tentatively scheduled for April and June.
Community members can also give input through online surveys available in English and Spanish at sonomacountyparks.org
