Crane Creek Regional Park Expansion - Background
Parks, in partnership with the City of Rohnert Park and the Sonoma County
Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, is seeking to expand Crane
Creek Regional Park. Discussions with the City of Rohnert Park are in process
for a 75-acre addition to the park that would advance the extension of the
Copeland Creek Trail, protect open space and natural resources, and ensure the
protection of the headwaters of Hinebaugh Creek.
The proposed acquisition will support a sustainably designed extension of the Copeland Creek Trail and will protect the surrounding greenway from Sonoma State University east to the 128-acre regional park.
The City of Rohnert Park and the University District LLC housing developer will be responsible for the parkland acquisition. A $360,170 Matching Grant from the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District to the City of Rohnert Park and $200,000 from Transportation Development Act Article 3 will fund the Copeland Creek Trail construction.
