What & Why?
Two properties were added to Sonoma Valley Regional Park: the 29-acre Curreri addition, and a 41-acre property from the Sonoma Developmental Center.
Regional Parks refined the park Master Plan, and worked with the community and agencies on how the expansion properties could best serve the public, while preserving the sites’ sensitive habitats.
On September 12, 2017, the Board of Supervisors of the County of Sonoma voted unanimously to approve the Master Plan and adopt the Mitigated Negative Declaration and Monitoring Program for the Sonoma Valley Regional Park Expansion.
Hike to Damselfly pond and take a look at the restoration planting and screening, just completed in April 2021. Over 150 native trees and shrubs were planted with mulched plant-beds, protective cages and temporary irrigation to support them for the first few of years as they establish.
Construction of new trails is being planned for fall 2021. Work is anticipated to begin on the Bobcat Trail (realignment from picnic area to Damselfly Pond), Moon View Trail realignment, and reestablishment of the Sonoma Valley Trail.
Additionally, engineering is being completed on improvements at the main park entrance. Design and engineering are underway for a permanent restroom, improved picnic facilities, including a shade structure, and improvements to the parking lot, including paving.
