Master Planning Process - 2017
The City of Santa Rosa Recreation & Parks Department is working with GSM Landscape Architecture, Inc. and David J. Powers & Associates to develop the Master Plan for Kawana Springs Community Park. David J. Powers is providing environmental analysis of the park area and GSM is working on the design plan. A series of community meetings were held during the spring and summer of 2017 to guide development of the Master Plan for Kawana Springs Community Park, a 19.2-acre park located in southeast Santa Rosa at Kawana Terrace and Meda Avenue. The meetings concluded with recommended approval of the Draft Master Plan from the Board of Community Services on August 23, 2017. At that time, the plan was to be presented to the City Council for review in six to eight months. However, the Tubbs Fire of October 2017 significantly impacted the City of Santa Rosa and delayed the park planning process.
