Recreation & Community Services

Recreational, leisure and community service programs are an important part of the overall delivery of services by the City of Sonoma to its residents.

The City of Sonoma does not operate its own Parks and Recreation Department, Community and Cultural Services Department, or similar internal City organization. Instead, the City has invested in outside service agencies, specifically non-profit organizations, which have filled the community’s need for important recreation and community programs including youth programs, athletic programs, senior services, arts and theater, and the facilities that operate these programs.

In March 2018, City Council approved The Recreation and Community Services Program or “Community Fund” that contracts with four key non-profits for delivery of core recreation and community services on the behalf of the City. The Community Fund also supports other recreation and services partnerships as well as sponsors “Heritage Events” and “Community Events.”

At their December 2020 meeting, City Council approved a resolution to launch a phased work plan and strategy for the creation of a comprehensive, Multi-Year Recreation and Park Master Plan. The resolution also authorized the formation of a Community Recreation and Parks Task Force. The Task Force is an ad hoc organization formed in January 2021 for the purpose of performing community outreach, data collection and to provide the Community Services and Environment Commission with advice relating to the first two phases of the City’s Multi-Year Recreation and Park Work Plan.
