The City of Santa Rosa Recreation & Parks Department is working with GSM Landscape Architecture, Inc. and David J. Powers & Associates to develop a Master Plan for Kawana Springs Community Park.This is a continuation of the community park planning process that began in the summer of 2015. The Master Plan will provide a long-range vision to guide development of this 19.2-acre park located in southeast Santa Rosa at Kawana Terrace and Meda Avenue. David J. Powers has been providing ongoing environmental analysis of the park area and GSM is working on the draft design plan. Residents are encouraged to particpate in the planning process to help determine the future of the park!
