About Rohnert Park
Rohnert Park is a relatively new town, springing to life as a master-planned community in 1961, with lovely homes for sale. Rohnert Park is a popular place for families who crave the small town feel and easy going pace of a tightly knit community. Each neighborhood is built around its own park and elementary school. Bikeways and walkways connect the tree-lined roads of residential neighborhoods. To take advantage of the great climate, Rohnert Park maintains an extensive array of recreation facilities, including 21 neighborhood parks, 26 tennis courts, five swimming pools, three dog parks, 14 softball and baseball fields, nine soccer fields, and numerous picnic and barbecue areas.
The 6,700 students of Rohnert Park are served by the Cotati-Rohnert Park Unified School District, which includes six elementary schools, two award-winning middle schools, and Rancho Cotate High School.
Sonoma State University is located in Rohnert Park and it makes a huge impact when it comes to quality of life. Lectures, performing arts, and courses open to the public make Rohnert Park a surprisingly stimulating place to live. The Green Music Center, on the campus of Sonoma State University features a 1,400-seat concert hall, a 250-seat recital hall, and an outdoor performance space with seating for 10,000. The city-owned Spreckels Performing Arts Center offers theater, musicals, a film series, as well as a dance series for kids.
Hills, vineyards, towering redwood groves and majestic oaks surround the town of Cotati. Downtown’s unique hexagonal square, La Plaza Park and its bandstand hosts a Kids’ Day Parade and Festival, a summertime farmers market, and the Cotati Jazz Festival. Cotati’s local flavor can perhaps best be experienced at the quirky Accordion Festival that attracts 2,500 aficionados of the squeeze box to La Plaza Park for a weekend of all things accordion.
To maintain the small town feel, Cotati residents voted in the 1990’s to curtail the growth of the city by forbidding any annexation of land beyond a fixed urban boundary line. That ensures Cotati will remain a quiet, residential community with unique homes for sale. Housing in Cotati is eclectic and diverse. True to its progressive Northern California roots, Cotati is home to Frogsong, one of the countries first co-housing communities.
Small vest-pocket parks abound, providing more than 45 acres of parks in this town of less than 10,000. The Cotati-Rohnert Park Unified School District comprises nine elementary (K-5) schools, two middle (6-8) and three high (9-12) schools. The main school is Rancho Cotate High School.
Sonoma State University is close by, located just outside Cotati’s city limits. The students make for a lively weekend music scene in Cotati, with nightclubs and music venues that feature appearances by local bands as well as national headliners.
