Dauenhauer Park Historic Hop-Kiln Recreated
Recently the City of Santa Rosa has been trying to personalize their new parks by including features that link directly to the individual site’s culture and history.
The City’s latest example can be seen – and played on – at the new Dauenhauer Park Playground. The City’s new park site was the former Dauenhauer Ranch property, where Florian Dauenhauer invented a hop picking machine in the late 1940’s that made it possible to grow the crop in large quantities, ushering in the age of mass production in the beer industry.
The roof design of the playstructures mirrors the old hop kilns used for drying hops and ales provides multiple opportunities for children to slide, climb, run and play. Carlile-Macy of Santa Rosa designed the popular new park working with Ewing Philbin at Ross Recreation Equipment and the custom design team at Landscape Structures, Inc.
