This month, volunteer Sonoma Rotarians teamed up with the town of Sonoma and Ross Recreation Equipment to upgrade and refresh a popular Landscape Structures play structure on the historic Sonoma Plaza. The plaza, a traditional town square and a source of regional pride for more than a century and a half, was the place where early settlers staged the Bear Flag Revolt in 1846, and is now a well visited tourist destination. In 1997, with partial funding from the Sonoma Valley Women’s Club and design support by Ross Recreation, two Landscape Structures play structures were installed at the Plaza. Last summer, the Sonoma Rotary Club contacted us about expanding and redesigning the preschool aged appropriate play structure, adding a new swing set and installing an accessible and inclusive sand and water table. Ross Recreation developed design options, and a new play area plan was approved by the town of Sonoma. The new playground equipment was successfully installed early this month by Rotary volunteers, with assistance from factory-certified installers supplied by Ross Recreation. The new play equipment is a huge hit with visitors and local families, and blends well with the wooded setting of the old town square.
