All-Weather Fields

As the leaves begin to fall from the trees we are reminded that the warm weather is coming to a close. The brisk winds welcome in winter and an indoor hibernation of sorts. We’re excited to share news that construction of all-weather soccer and softball fields at Sunrise Park has begun. This will provide a year-round facility for residents to enjoy, demonstrating again the City’s commitment to provide outstanding recreational opportunities. The project is scheduled for completion next year, and in the meantime the park is currently closed. That means next year we’ll be able to play in the rain (or sleet, or hail)! 

 

Halloween Carnival

What little ghoul or goblin doesn’t enjoy games, food, a costume parade, a haunted maze, and FREE candy? Come enjoy the spooky festivities hosted by the Community Services department on Saturday October 27 from Noon – 5 p.m. Your little monster is sure to enjoy the family-friendly, not too spooky, event for all ages at the Rohnert Park Community Center, 5401 Snyder Lane.

To help spread the word about this exciting event we invite you to visit the Rohnert Park Community Services Facebook page and go to the events tab. If you respond “going” indicating that you’re going to the event, your name will be entered in a drawing. The drawings occur every Friday in October at 12:15 p.m. via Facebook Live. The winner will be able to choose from one of the following: 1 free week of Summer Camp - Camp Burton (ages 5 to 10); Preschool Camp (ages 3 to 5); or Teen Excursion Camp (ages 11 to 14) OR a family pack of 4 tickets to see Cinderella the Musical at Spreckels in May. 

If you already said you’re going, you’re automatically entered. If you have said you’re interested, you would need to change your s tatus to going by Thursday at 5pm in order to be entered. 

The drawing will take place each Friday of October at 12:15 pm (during your lunch break hopefully). Winners need to call (707) 588-3456 by the following Tuesday at 5 pm to claim their prize.

One prize per person.
