Why are the Plaza Park and athletic fields exempt from watering restrictions?

While people can’t water their lawns as much, Sonoma’s Plaza Park is exempted due to its heavy use and as one gathering place where residents and children can enjoy green turf. Athletic fields offer safe places for recreation during the drought.

Flexible irrigation days and times are needed to support events on the Plaza and to respond to impacts in particular areas of the park. The City continues to manage irrigation of the Plaza to minimize water waste. Turf irrigation in other City parks is limited to two days per week.
