Bert Whitaker, Director
Sonoma County Regional Parks
As our community responds to the evolving coronavirus emergency, the Regional Parks remain open as a public resource under Sonoma County's latest health order.
Although we are directed to stay home as much as possible, we can go outdoors to exercise. With the support of Sonoma County's leadership, the parks, trails and beaches will remain open and parking fees will be waved.
Being able to stay active and benefit from the calming effects of nature is crucial at a time like this, and the parks are open to you for walking, running, hiking and biking.
However, the availability of the parks does not lessen the seriousness of this health emergency. The greater priority is to slow the spread of this disease, and we may consider closing certain parks if visitation nears capacity or appears to contribute to the emergency.
To further comply with the shelter in place order, we have closed campgrounds, playgrounds, picnic areas and other gathering spots and suspended non-essential services. Our office is closed, and administrative staff are working remotely. Here is the full list of our closures.
We will need to stay calm and grounded for the challenges ahead. We hope the parks can offer some respite while supporting your health and resiliency.
The SCRP will continue to be in touch and offer suggestions for staying connected to your parks. One resource we'd like to share is our newly expanded wildflower guide. You can download the guide to your phone and refer to it while enjoying spring walks or you can use it simply to read up on some of your local flowers.
Spring wildflowers are blooming, and we have an updated field guide to help you learn more about your local flowers. Download this easy-to-use-guide to your phone, and take it along on your next hike.
