Rohnert Park's beginnings as a community of neighborhoods created a suburban style city, with no specific downtown. Instead of a city center, each neighborhood in Rohnert Park is defined by a public park and school, offering a family-friendly environment with plenty to do for residents all ages - from tots to seniors. A system of bike trails links the neighborhoods; and tennis courts, swimming pools, a golf course, and special recreational programs provide year round activity. Sonoma State University, situated to the east of Rohnert Park, is home to the Green Music Center, a world-class facility that has been named one of the 10 most beautiful music venues in California.
Construction of Rohnert Park began in the late 1950s, resulting in a mid-century sensibility for many of the homes in the area; and detached single-family ranch-style homes are plentiful, although the occasional condominium, multi-family, or manufactured home does come on the real estate market. Today, development of Rohnert Park continues with Sonoma Mountain Village (SOMO), a 200-acre mixed-use neighborhood that proclaims itself to be "one of the greenest neighborhoods in the world". Upon completion, this eco-community will feature luxury homes, lofts, and condos that are environmentally friendly.
