Creekside Park is an unusual mixture of activity and quietude, fun and art, farming and transportation, conservation and natural beauty all packed into a small and beautiful designed Public Park.
When Creekside Park opened in 2014 it immediately began drawing much attention and approval from local skateboarding enthusiasts. Russian River Skate Park was designed for maximum enjoyment for beginners and advanced skaters alike. You’ll also see young kids on scooters enjoying the track. People come from all over to enjoy this unique setting where redwood groves cover the surrounding hills.
Skaters and artists have discovered that it’s perfectly okay to express themselves in paint on the ‘park-approved’ art wall on the back of the main building. Here anyone with an artistic bent can create colorful imagery within the defined area.
You can watch the action at the skate park from up on the deck or wander the one-third mile Dutch Bill Creek Loop Trail that encircles the park. There you will encounter many native species and edible plants and fruit and nut trees, each identified with metal sign plates. Creekside Park is also home to the Creekside Park Communal Orchard and Farm where the produce is shared with the farmers and public alike and is also used in the café. A water catchment system has been installed to help keep all things growing even in the driest months. More about the farm and orchard on the Community Garden page.
The Café at Creekside Park serves handmade foods as well as a selection of beverages not least of which are their barista coffee drinks. The Café building also houses the public restrooms.
Creekside Park is an oasis for the thousands of cyclists who ride the roads in West Sonoma County all year long. Here they will find the much needed rest stop with clean restrooms, roadside bike racks and a Bicycle Aid Station.
This is a key stop for Sonoma County Transit bus 20 and 28.
