Land Acquired for Sonoma Valley Park Expansion

October 30, 2014 in News

Sonoma County Regional Parks on Oct. 30 took ownership of 29 acres known as the “Curreri property,” which sits in the “pinchpoint” of the imperiled Sonoma Valley Wildlife Corridor. The land was purchased by the Sonoma Land Trust, which immediately transferred the property to Regional Parks to be added to the 162-acre Sonoma Valley Regional Park. Along with its value for wildlife, the Curreri property offers panoramic views of the Sonoma Valley, Sonoma Mountain, the Mayacamas Range, and San Pablo and San Francisco Bays.

Regional Parks’ staff will begin planning for public access this winter. Meanwhile, interim use of the site's existing trails will begin next spring and trail improvements could begin as early as next fall, once the park's master plan is amended to include the Curreri addition. "We are thrilled to be able to add such a crucial piece of land to Sonoma Valley Regional Park, with its importance to wildlife movement, the viewshed and its significant beauty," said Regional Parks Director Caryl Hart.
