The October 2017 firestorm damaged approximately 75 acres within 10 Santa Rosa City park sites. Damage was sustained within Community Parks, Neighborhood Parks, Open Space and Landscape Areas. Total damage estimate is more than $40-million. The City’s most severely damaged park is Coffey Neighborhood Park where upwards of $5-million is needed to rebuild. Federal disaster funding for Coffey Park is estimated to be as little as $1-million. This leaves up to $4-million to be raised through other sources, including community donations, just to rebuild Coffey Park alone.

The Santa Rosa Parks Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, is working with Santa Rosa Recreation & Parks to fundraise and serve as the sole source for collecting community donations to help rebuild Santa Rosa’s fire damaged City parks.
