Juilliard Park
Santa Rosa’s Beautiful Parks
We are one of the only cities where you will find a City park, a County park and a State park joined by a trail system.

Sonoma County Regional Parks
Take some time to relax and have fun. The Sonoma County Regional Parks Department provides outstanding recreational opportunities. Fishing, camping, swimming, picnicking, trails for horseback riding, hiking or bicycling, quiet coves, sandy beaches, inspiring views, redwood groves, meadows dotted with oaks, sports fields; we've got it all!

Spring Lake Regional Park
This 320 acre park features camping, fishing, picnic areas with barbecues, and four group picnic areas. Trails are available for walking, hiking, bicycling and horseback riding. The park includes a 3 acre swimming lagoon and a 72-acre lake. Don't forget to visit the Visitors Center at Spring Lake for a wonderful all-age educational experience.

GeeseAnnadel State Park
The park, 60 miles north of San Francisco on the eastern edge of Santa Rosa offers miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and trail riding.  For wildflower lovers, Annadel Park offers a great variety of flowers from early Spring until early Summer, especially on a hike around Lake Ilsanjo. The best months to see the park's wildflowers are April and May, but there are some plants in bloom as early as January and as late as September.
Fishing Lake Ilsanjo offers excellent fishing for black bass and bluegill. Black bass weighing nine pounds and more have been caught here. A purple plastic worm is a favored bait for the bass, while the bluegill favor garden worms, small crayfish, and grubs. If you are 16 years of age or older, you must have a California fishing license. Ledson Marsh dries up by late August or early September and so no fish are found there.
