Maxwell Farms Regional Park
- Owned By
Maxwell Farms Regional Park is on the northwest side of Sonoma, between Highway 12 and Sonoma Creek. To a passerby, this park might seem like a traditional park, with sports fields, a playground, skate park, tennis courts, picnic sites, and a Boys and Girls Club. However, Maxwell Farms also features 40 acres of riparian backcountry with lovely trails shaded by giant bay and oak trees and access to the creek.
The park’s trails are virtually level, offering an easy stroll through mature trees, meadows, and the remnants of the historic orchard. The Maxwell family farmed this property for 100 years until the late1960s, planting plum and apricot trees that still produce fruit.
Paved, wheelchair-accessible trails as well as accessible playgrounds and picnic areas.
