Project Description

Kenilworth is the largest community park serving the mid-town area and is in need of reinvestment to better serve our growing community. Redesigning this cherished park will provide much-needed park and play space that better serve our growing community. Our goals are to create spaces for people of all ages to support a healthy, sustainable, and more connected Petaluma.  Park improvements may include but are not limited to reimagined play spaces; integrated public art into play areas; improved access and safety features; inclusive elements for all ages and abilities; drainage enhancements; trees and shade structures; native and drought tolerant plantings; natural elements; recreational amenities; and turf and pathway improvements.

Generations of Petalumans have made memories with their friends, families, and loved ones at Kenilworth Park. We look forward to hearing from you and working together to help create an equitable, diverse, and inclusive space for future Petalumans to enjoy!

Community Drop-In Event

We invited the community to join us to celebrate the redesign of Kenilworth Park on Saturday, February 3rd. We hosted a drop-in event for the community to come together, see the preliminary park design, and play! The feedback we received will help to guide the final design.

Community Workshop & Survey #1

Community input is an essential part of the Kenilworth Park Revitalization project. We held our first Community Workshop on October 20, 2022 and conducted a community survey to gather feedback on current concerns and ideas for the future of the park. Thank you to all who took the time to participate! A detailed report summarizing the workshop and survey results can be viewed HERE. (Haga clic aquí para ver el resumen del reporte en español.)

More About the Project

Thanks in part to Proposition 68: California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act, in combination with the voter-approved Sonoma County Measure M: Parks for All Initiative benefiting local parks, the city has an opportunity to invest these funds and engage the community to create a shared vision and address the parks most critical needs.  

The City of Petaluma has partnered with MIG, Inc., a Bay Area based design firm known for community driven, inclusive, and inspiring park designs, to lead the design of the Kenilworth Park Revitalization Project. The City has also selected the Project Artist, Oleg Lobykin, through a competitive search for public artists to contribute to the design. The design process will include extensive community outreach and engagement in the summer and fall of 2023.

Please stay tuned to our Community Update emails, social media channels, and this webpage for project information and more opportunities to get involved.
