Park Information

Riverfront Regional Park is located along the Russian River, just minutes from downtown Windsor and Healdsburg, and surrounded by classic Wine Country scenery. The park features a popular picnic area in a redwood grove and two lakes for fishing, kayaking, and canoeing. 

The 2-mile Lake Trail loops around the larger lake, Lake Benoist, and includes a short unpaved spur to small gravel beach on the Russian River. The .5-mile Redwood Hill Trail climbs through a grove of coast redwoods. 

A restroom with flush toilets and a drinking fountain are available. 

Group Picnics

A redwood grove near the parking area contains individual picnic sites and a reserveable group picnic area with a large barbecue. The area also includes a volleyball net strung among the trees and a horseshoe pit. To reserve the group site, call our reservations desk between 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday at (707) 565-2041.
