Kawana Springs Community Park: Plan for the Future

The City of Santa Rosa Recreation & Parks Department is working with GSM Landscape Architecture, Inc. and David J. Powers & Associates to develop a Master Plan for Kawana Springs Community Park.This is a continuation of the community park planning process that began in the summer of 2015. The Master Plan will provide a long-range vision to guide development of this 19.2-acre park located in southeast Santa Rosa at Kawana Terrace and Meda Avenue. David J. Powers has been providing ongoing environmental analysis of the park area and GSM is working on the draft design plan. Residents are encouraged to participate in the planning process to help determine the future of the park!

A series of community meetings were held during the spring and summer of 2017 and concluded with recommended approval from the Board of Community Services on August 23, 2017. The plan goes before City Council for final approval in six to eight months. Please check back here for future posting of the City Council meeting date.

A Place to Play Park: Proposed Master Plan Amendments

The City of Santa Rosa Recreation & Parks Department is working with the Water Department to amend the A Place to Play Park Master Plan to include the following four changes:

1. Addition of a new emergency well and water system to be located near the southwest corner of the park. The proposed emergency groundwater well will offer a viable option in the event of an emergency or disconnection to the Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA) Aqueduct. The water provided by the well would provide a temporary clean water source to Santa Rosa Water customers, such as hospitals, schools, nursing facilities, homes and businesses.
2. Addition of an existing water pump station that is currently located in the northwest area of the park. This water pump was installed in the park in 2007 and the change to the master plan reflects this alteration.
3. Addition of picnic areas to be located near existing and future playgrounds.
4. Addition of three hydration stations and/or drinking fountains (locations to be determined).

A series of community meetings on the proposed master plan amendments concluded in May 2017, followed by recommended approval for the plan from the Board of Community Services. The plan goes before City Council for final approval in six to eight months. Please check back here for future posting of the City Council meeting date. For specific questions about the new emergency well and water system, please contact Jillian Tilles at jtilles@srcity.org or (707) 543-3878. For other questions about the proposed Master Plan amendments, please contact Kristi Buffo at kbuffo@srcity.org or (707) 543-3276.

Galvin Community Park: Tennis Court Lights

The lights are on at the tennis courts at Galvin Community Park! Installation of the new electrical wiring system is complete and timers provide free lights for evening play. Thank you for your patience during this project.

Howarth Park: Pathway Replacement

Construction on the sidewalk and pathways surrounding the tennis and pickle ball courts at Howarth Memorial Park began in early March. The improvements will include replacing the sidewalks in front of the tennis courts along Summerfield Road and the park pathways that border the tennis courts. The courts will remain open for play during this work. New pathways will also be added within the park to improve access to the ball field from the lower parking lot area. The project will take a few months to complete, weather permitting. For more information, please contact Jen Santos, Parks Deputy Director at jsantos@srcity.org or (707) 543-3781.

Juilliard Park: Pond Resurfacing

Reconstruction on the decorative ponds at Juilliard Park is now complete! The lining was resurfaced to repair cracks that had accumulated over time contributing to pond water loss. Volunteers to help maintain the ponds are needed; please contact Elaine Gutsch at egutsch@srcity.org or (707) 543-3279 for more info on volunteering.
