Regional Parks' Social Equity Statement

Sonoma County Regional Parks is committed to ensuring all Sonoma County residents have equitable access to the benefits parks provide the community. True to the philosophy of public parks is the concept that people of all backgrounds --- no matter the color of their skin, age, income level, ability, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, country of origin, or language --- can enjoy programs, facilities, places and spaces on common ground.  Parks build communities by creating welcome and inclusive environments.

Sonoma County Regional Parks works to ensure all people have access to parks, and are involved in the development and use of park services. Regional Parks focuses on quality educational and recreational programs, safe facilities, investments in regional park improvement projects addressing identified disparities, and supporting policies and programs that support our most vulnerable communities.

Sonoma County Regional Parks believes in equitable access to parks for all to create a just, healthy, and resilient community.
