Located adjacent to the Russian River, Riverfront Regional Park is just minutes west of downtown Windsor. The main attractions in the park are two former gravel pits which have been reclaimed as lakes offering bass fishing. No swimming is allowed in the lakes. Amenities include individual and reservable group picnic areas (with BBQs), a two-mile multiuse trail around Lake Benoist and a half mile long trail over Redwood Hill. Additional facilities include a volleyball court and horseshoe pit as well as a drinking fountain and flush toilets.
Improvements to the loop trail on the west side of Lake Benoist provide a greater level of access during the rainy season. The Master Plan identifies future phases of park development including additional trails, picnic areas, Lake Benoist boat launch, and Russian River boating access.
Riverfront Regional Park Trails
Length:3.12 miles of trails
Riverfront Regional Park is located just outside of the town of Windsor and includes 3.12 miles of trail. The primary trail leads from the parking lot to a loop around Lake Benoist, one of two reclaimed gravel pits within the park. While swimming is prohibited, the lakes are popular with fishermen and non-motorized boating is allowed. The Redwood Hill Trail offers a pleasant climb up and over a small hill from the picnic area, passing through oak woodland. Equestrians are allowed on the Lake Benoist Loop Trail, and facilities include equestrian parking and hitching posts.
