More than 10 years in the making, the newest Regional Park in Sonoma County offer bucolic vistas and a comfortably serpentine trail that belies the behind-the-scenes work required to create it. The park was officially dedicated Monday afternoon.
Creating a large new public park is always a complex process, says Sonoma County Regional Parks Director Caryl Hart. But this one was more challenging than most.
Sonoma County’s Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District works to protect farmlands, greenbelts, open spaces and potential parklands, explains Executive Director Bill Keene. This project was a priority in that latter category.
