Guerneville River Park offers visitors a view of the Russian River as well as parking, a restroom facility, group and family picnic sites, paved paths and an open grass area.
The Russian River provides recreational opportunities to millions of Sonoma County visitors each year, yet a small portion of the 65 miles of riverfront land in the county is publicly accessible. Development of a park in the center of Guerneville has long been a desire of the community.
Future development planned for this 5.33-acre park consists of additional parking, paved paths; group and family picnic sites; a small outdoor stage; small craft boat launch and portage area. The purpose of the project is to provide additional recreational opportunities along the Russian River to visitors and residents of Sonoma County and Guerneville.
