The Woodland Regional Park Preserve - a unique nature park within our community
The City of Woodland, in partnership with Tuleyome, Explorit Science Center and other nonprofits, is creating the Woodland Regional Park Preserve, a 160 acre nature park at the site of the retired landfill located east of Road 102 and south of Road 25. The vision for this Park Preserve includes enhancing the wetland, plant, and wildlife resources on the site; improving access for public visitation; developing formal and informal education programs, and creating a Center for Nature, Science, and Culture. This Center would house formal and informal education for individuals of all ages, attracting classes from local schools, supporting citizen science, and docent training.
Location of the Woodland Regional Park Preserve
The Woodland Regional Park Preserve's unique landscape will bring the enjoyment of the outdoors to our community and will advance our understanding of the many ways the environment shapes our agriculture, our communities, and our personal and planetary health. The Park Preserve’s close proximity to several public schools, the Woodland Community College, and residential neighborhoods make it a convenient education and nature outlet, accessible within walking and biking distance.

To date, $1.5 million in grants from State Parks, the Wildlife Conservation Board, and several other funding agencies have enabled construction of a permanent and seasonal wetland; riparian planting; a half-mile ADA accessible nature trail; two ADA parking spaces; signage, including a kiosk; docent, citizen science, and formal education programs; and other improvements.
Other key nonprofit partners that have made contributions to the development and maintenance of the Park include the California Waterfowl Association, Conaway Preservation Group, Rotary Clubs, Sierra Club, Woodland Community College, Woodland Tree Foundation, Woodland Joint Unified School District, Yolo Community Foundation, Yolo Audubon Society, Yolo County RCD, and Yolo County Office of Education.
