The October 2017 firestorm damaged 10 Santa Rosa City park sites. Damage was sustained within Community Parks, Neighborhood Parks, Open Space and Landscape Areas. Total damage is estimated at $7-$14 Million. The City’s most severely damaged park is Coffey Neighborhood Park, which was destroyed. The amount of federal disaster funding that the City will receive to rebuild Coffey Park and repair damage in the City's other fire damaged parks remains unknown. Even with full FEMA and CAL OES reimbursement of approved damages, there is a significant, multi-million dollar gap in the funding needed to restore Santa Rosa's burned parks.
