Park Information

Maxwell Farms Regional Park in northwest Sonoma features soccer and baseball fields, tennis and volleyball courts, a large playground, multiple picnic sites, and nature trails winding through meadows and woods along Sonoma Creek.


Maxwell Farms Regional Park includes 40 acres of riparian backcountry with 2.5 miles of trails shaded by bay and oak trees and access to Sonoma Creek.

The park’s trails are level, offering an easy stroll through mature trees, meadows and the remnants of a historic orchard. (The Maxwell family farmed the property for 100 years until the late 1960s, planting plum and apricot trees that still produce fruit.) Trailheads are behind the baseball field, playground, and ranger residence. 

Three Meadows Trail and Back Meadow Trail parallel Sonoma Creek, which is the sole drainage of Sonoma Valley, running from the Mayacamas Mountains to San Pablo Bay.

Maxwell Farms Park Map

Maxwell Farms is a popular park in northwest Sonoma with fields for soccer and baseball, tennis and volleyball courts, an accessible playground and picnic sites, and 2.5 miles of nature trails winding through 40 acres of backcountry. 

The park is basically divided into two distinct areas: the "front country" area containing recreation infrastructure such as playing fields, picnic facilities, playgrounds, etc. in contrast to the "backcountry area" comprised of 2.5 miles of trails across 40 acres of open space. The trails in the section of the park are virtually level offering easy strolls through corridors of mature bay trees and across remnants of historic orchards.
