Rohnert Park just celebrated their 51st year of existence. With a population of over 42,000, Rohnert Park is Sonoma County’s third largest city. Thoughtfully designed for families, it is one of the first planned communities in the United States. Bikeways and walkways connect its tree-lined boulevards and attractive neighborhoods. Each neighborhood is designed around a park and elementary school.
Rohnert Park has become the Family Fun and Entertainment capital of Sonoma County, with Driven Raceway, an indoor raceway (see story page 78); Scandia Fun Center, with a state-of-the-art grand arcade, batting cages, bumperboats, Lil’ Indy raceway, miniature golf, Cal Skate skating rink; and Double Decker Lanes, a solar powered bowling alley.
Foxtail Golf Club is a public course, which winds around a good portion of Rohnert Park and offers two 18-hole championship golf courses.
Spreckels Theater is a magnificent complex of theater venues: the facility totals 41,000 square feet and houses two theaters designed and built exclusively for dance, music and theatrical performances.
The latest entry into your entertainment options is Graton Casino. Touted as the state’s largest casino, this sprawling facility offers 3,000 state-of-the-art casino slots and 144 table games. The complex includes 12 dining options from fine dining to casual. Plans include building a three-story hotel on site.
Rohnert Park has a number of lodging choices, including a Doubletree Inn right off of the Golf Course.
Rohnert Park is home to Sonoma State University and Green Music Center (see story next page), now home of the Santa Rosa Symphony and host to world class musical performers.
Sonoma Mountain Village is a 200-acre planned mixed-use community that combines existing and new commercial space with homes, fun amenities, rich culture and a sense of community. Sonoma Mountain Village is the first One Planet Community in North America. The Event Center and Sally Tomatoes Cafe & Bar are 100% solar powered.
