Free Parking for Veterans on Holiday Weekend

October 23, 2014 in News

In honor of Veterans Day, military members and veterans will receive free parking at all Sonoma County Regional Parks for the upcoming holiday weekend.
Active duty, veteran and retired military personnel and their families will be able to visit county parks and trails - including parks such as Spring Lake, Doran Beach, Ragle Ranch, and Taylor Mountain - with a special pass that waives the regular $7 day-use parking fee from Friday, Nov. 7, through Monday, Nov. 10.

Visitors requesting passes will be asked to show a valid military identification card, a Veterans Affairs card, or an honorable discharge record. Sonoma County residency isn’t required.
With support from the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors, Regional Parks is offering the Veterans Day weekend pass for a second year and in collaboration with the Sonoma County Human Services Department.
Passes are available in advance of the holiday weekend at the following locations, during business hours Monday-Friday:

  • Sonoma County Regional Parks’ main office, 2300 County Center Drive, Suite 120A, Santa Rosa
  • Sonoma County Veterans Service Office, 3725 Westwind Blvd., Santa Rosa.
  • Sonoma County Behavioral Health Annex, 3322 Chanate Road, Santa Rosa
  • Petaluma Community Health Center, 1360 North McDowell Blvd., Suite 1A, Petaluma
  • Guerneville Community Health Center, 16290 Main Street, Guerneville

Passes also are available now at the staffed entries to Spring Lake, Doran and Ragle Ranch parks and will continue to be available at those parks through the holiday weekend.

In addition to the Veterans Day pass, Regional Parks offers a year-round distinguished veterans day-use pass, which provides free parking to disabled war veterans, former prisoners of war and Congressional Medal of Honor recipients.
