The City of Santa Rosa Recreation & Parks Department is working with the Water Department to amend the A Place to Play Park Master Plan to include the following four changes:

1) Addition of a new emergency well and water system to be located near the southwest corner of the park. The proposed emergency groundwater well will offer a viable option in the event of an emergency, such as an earthquake that would disrupt the public water system, or disconnection or interruption to the Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA) system. The water provided by the emergency well would provide a temporary water source to Santa Rosa Water customers, such as hospitals, schools, nursing facilities, homes and businesses. 

2) Addition of an existing recycled water pump station that is currently located in the northwest area of the park. This pump station was installed in the park in 2007 and the change to the master plan reflects this alteration.

3) Addition of picnic areas to be located near existing and future playgrounds.

4)  Addition of three hydration stations and/or drinking fountains (locations to be determined). 

The City would like your input on the proposed changes. Please refer to the "Topic" below to view an enlarged graphic of the Master Plan and to leave your comments.
