Recreation abounds here! The Russian River runs by the east side of downtown, then there is Memorial
Beach where people gather to picnic, swim, canoe and kayak. Lake Sonoma is just northwest of town, offering hiking and water sports while the woods of Fitch Mountain lie to the east. As a family we love to walk to the Plaza-we use the playground and public tennis courts, for golfers, there is a public 9 hole golf course, Tayman Park just up South Fitch Mtn.
Also Healdsburg Recreation Park offers lighted baseball/softball, and football fields.
