Discover Sonoma County Regional Parks
The Regional Parks represent the beauty and diversity of Sonoma County and are a valuable public resource. The park system includes more than 50 parks and trails from Petaluma to Gualala and Sonoma to Bodega Bay. Many offer natural, undeveloped landscapes. Others feature sports fields, playgrounds, campgrounds, swimming beaches and boat launches. Regional Parks also manages ocean marinas and the county's largest environmental education center and hosts special events, guided outings, family activities, festivals, aquatics training, and many other opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.
