Welcome to Cotati/Rohnert Park
adjacent communities nestled in central sonoma county
Both tucked in the northwest of Sonoma County, Cotati and Rohnert Park are something of hidden gems. With creeks and a reservoir cutting through Rohnert Park and the Petaluma Watershed — and the Pacific Ocean — located just out of Cotati’s boundaries, they enjoy cooler temperatures along with their central location near U.S. Route 101.
Cotati’s history lends it some old-world charm as its hexagonal layout harkens back to many European cities. Both located in the Mexican land grant area of Rancho Cotate, Cotati’s history spans over a century, growing from the locally-dubbed Page’s Station to the gentle beacon of living we know today. On the other hand, Rohnert Park grew from a meager settlement to a small but thriving city with the completion of the U.S. Route 101 Freeway.
Today, Cotati and Rohnert Park are home to attractive architecture and tree-lined streets, all underneath a canopy of cooler Californian temperatures and dotted with historic downtowns and a wealth of gorgeous green spaces.
