Howarth park is a great place to go to make everyone happy. You can fish on the lake, hike, rent a paddle boat, ride a pony, check out the petting zoo in the summer, get ice cream from the snack bar and let the kiddies have fun on the playground. they have a very new playground, complete with a mini town, water fun, and a rope jungle gym, also kids can dig for burried dino bones. Howarth park also hosts family fun night ( I believe every other friday) where all kinds of sonoma county orgonizations set booths( like Canine Companions for independence, wild animal rescue and bird rescue). I think they also have clowns who make balloon animals, and santa rosa's mascott, Spunky the Squirell is also there.
