Maxwell Farms Regional Park Renovation Phase 1 Construction - Project Detail

Maxwell Farms Regional Park Renovation Map

Maxwell Farms Regional Park was developed in 1988, and over the years, the 85-acre park has provided the residents of the Sonoma Valley unincorporated communities and the City of Sonoma with a wide variety of active recreation opportunities, a well-loved natural area with walking trails, and access to Sonoma Creek.

In response to strong community interest, increasing population, shifting demographics, deferred maintenance needs, and the loss of a local private ballfield (Paul’s Field), Regional Parks updated the park’s Master Plan. The updated Master Plan was adopted in 2019 and supports a community vision for the park to meet the current and future recreational needs while preserving and enhancing the natural resource values of the floodplain and riparian environments along Sonoma Creek. The Phase 1 construction is the first phase of implementing the master plan update.

Specific elements included in Phase 1 of construction include a new all-weather baseball field, a new all-weather soccer field, two new restroom buildings with concession capacities, expanded parking, expanded accessible parking, parking lot safety lighting improvements, accessible paths of travel, picnic areas and various site furnishings. Additionally, the project will provide a newly aligned and expanded entry drive with a dedicated left turn egress lane and an enlarged turn around and drop off area to better accommodate emergency vehicles, buses and facilitate Boys and Girls Club drop offs and pickups.

Concurrently with the adoption of the Master Plan Update for Maxwell Farms Regional Park, the Board adopted a Mitigated Negative Declaration in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act, which addressed the improvements to be completed via the proposed contract.
