Nowhere to go in RoPo

What is there to do in Rohnert Park Calif.? This is a common question that is asked when non-locals visit the area and quite frankly there isn’t much. It is always a bit embarrassing to reply back with the same few things that constantly include Scandia or the local movie theater. A reason why Rohnert Park is so low on things to do is due to the lack of a true “downtown” area in the city. The city of Rohnert Park is beautiful but the absence of a downtown is leaving residents with a desire for more and is hurting the city’s overall popularity and growth. In recent news though, there does seem to be a glimmer of hope down a long tunnel as the city bought a 30-acre lot last year with the plans of it eventually becoming the long-awaited downtown.
