Montgomery High School Parking Lot (near the tennis courts)
The spring weather should be perfect for a walk along the edge of the Southeast Greenway! With three creeks, old trees, wide swaths of open space and beautiful vistas, this is the best time of year to “Imagine A Greenway… to Spring Lake and Beyond.” The walk will give you a chance to see and learn more about the land’s potential for restoration and how it fits into a regional plan for connectivity.
Meet up with walk leaders at Montgomery High School. We will stop by Yulupa Cohousing for a rest stop, continue up the hill to view the Greenway’s connection to Spring Lake Park and then return to the High School. The walk is about 4 miles round trip on city streets and sidewalks. Terrain is mostly flat but includes one fairly steep hill.
Please remember to bring hats, water, sunglasses, sunscreen and any other items you might enjoy on an urban walk.

What if Santa Rosa had the opportunity to convert a blighted and a long neglected area of the city into an attractive open space for exercise, recreation and alternative transportation? That opportunity has arrived. Caltrans recently announced that it does not plan to develop the extension of Highway 12 through southeast Santa Rosa. This has opened a window of opportunity for the conversion of the designated highway easement into a 2-mile greenway from Farmers Lane to Spring Lake. . . read more

In June 2011, the American Institute of Architects sent a Sustainable Design Assessment Team (SDAT) of national consultants to Santa Rosa to help create a vision for the Greenway. After meeting with over 300 residents as well as state and local officials, the SDAT consultants have weighed in.
