Located in Sonoma County's southern central plain with 42,550 residents, Rohnert Park is the 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. The city itself is surrounded by farms and grazing land where nationally sought-after organic and boutique vegetables, fruits, and cheeses are grown and produced.
Rohnert Park is a sports and recreation destination in Sonoma County. It has more public and private recreational facilities and opportunities per capita than any other city in the North Bay. There is an added attraction of two performing arts centers and a major university, Sonoma State University.
