Yesterday, we heard from Santa Rosa’s deputy parks director about plans for a new community park in Roseland. The 20 acre site is an oasis of nature and beauty. Members of the community differ on how the park should be built to provide maximum benefit to all.
Today, we meet Duane DeWitt – a neighborhood activist who lives near this park, and who played in what he calls this “neighborWOOD” as a child.
Listen to community member Sandra Valencia talk with KRCB News Director Steve Mencher about what her friends and neighbors are saying about the park.
Reporting for this project supported by a grant from the USC-Annenberg Center for Health Journalism Impact Fund.
