Tolay Master Plan Workshop - Jan. 16, 2014

January 8, 2014 in News
The public is invited to a Jan. 16 workshop to learn more about the planning process for Tolay Lake Regional Park and to share ideas and feedback on the park's future uses. A park master plan is being prepared to provide a range of outdoor recreation and environmental education opportunities and to protect sensitive habitats and cultural resources.

The workshop will be held at the Petaluma Community Center at Lucchesi Park from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., with an opportunity to review materials and speak with planners from 6 to 6:30 p.m.

Tolay Lake Regional Park is southeast of Petaluma, between the Petaluma River and the Sonoma Valley. This unique 1,769-acre property was acquired by the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District and transferred to Regional Parks in 2005. The property contains grasslands, ridges, a seasonal freshwater lake, ponds, wetlands, and other natural and cultural resources and provides habitat for several species of special status. For now, public access is available through a weekend permit program, guided hikes, and the annual Tolay Fall Festival. Regional Parks began gathering public input and developing elements of a park master plan in 2013 and will continue the process this year.
