Lake Sonoma is more than a lake --- there is a huge grassy area, picnicing is around in various places, a marina, and biking trails around it (Mtn Bikes)... and my favorite addition is the dog park. It is about 11 miles from the center of town. If you have a dog, it is nice to drive out on Dry Creek Rd, enjoy the scenery - and when you arrive at the left turn entry, follow the signs towards the right side of the entry. The dog park has water and some tubes for dogs to jump on or go through. A few tables and chairs and 2 swimming (plastic) pools were recently added. It's the largest dog park in Healdsburg, and it is grass. Yes, there are bees. Be careful. Don't bring food into the park especially if other dogs are around. Park on the gravel. It has a double gate entry for safety. Lake: Nice !! Too bad this was not a rainy year as the water level is lower than usual. I only know about the biking trails from a friend, he says there is one to take you around the lake, and it is a fairly long trek. Ups and downs. Ask at the visitor center for more information. Also, don't forget about the fish ponds and watch were they have holding tanks - a nice break in the day, free of charge, and there is a good sized topography-designed model to look at the lake and surrounding area.
