Greenway Facts

When completed, a two-mile-long Class 1 bicycle path will run through the Greenway. The path will provide a key link in our County’s trail network, connecting with Sonoma Valley trails to the east, SMART and its associated trails north and south, the Prince Memorial Greenway and West County trails reaching all the way to Forestville.


Preferred Alternative Greenway Plan Finalized!

On March 28th the Santa Rosa City Council and Planning Commission provided recommendations to the staff and planning consultant on a draft preferred alternative plan for the SE Greenway. The Southeast Greenway Campaign joined with Sonoma Land Trust, Regional Parks, the Sonoma County Water Agency and City Planning staff to support the preferred alternative.

The Campaign Committee agreed that the draft preferred alternative met the City’s need for housing while providing a visionary linear open space and park linking Spring Lake to Hoen Ave., with pathways that connect to Farmers Lane and beyond. A mix of park uses and open spaces with restored natural habitat will connect neighborhoods to the north and south and offer a host of benefits to neighbors and visitors alike.

Take a Guided Walk this Spring!

Wednesday, May 31th | 5:15 – 7:15 pm
Meet at Montgomery High parking lot near tennis courts 

The spring weather should be perfect for a walk along the edge of the Southeast Greenway. You may be surprised that this land hosts three creeks, many oak and walnut trees, and wide swaths of open space that provide great views of Taylor and Bennett Mountains. Learn more about the property’s potential uses based on the City’s preferred alternative plan.

Meet walk leaders in the parking lot near the tennis courts at Montgomery High School. This walk is about 2.5 miles round trip on city streets and sidewalks, with stops to view important features. Terrain is mostly flat but includes one fairly steep hill. Remember to bring hats, water, snacks, and a light jacket as it may cool off quickly in the evening.

Please register by emailing us at info@southeastgreenway.org or calling us at (707) 703-1922. Please include your name, email address and the best phone number to reach you at. Heavy rain cancels.
