About Sonoma Plaza, Sonoma
Sonoma Plaza is the at the heart of Sonoma Town and it is the largest plaza in California. Like every town centre, this plaza is surrounded by shops, restaurants and other points of sightseeing situated in town. In the northeast corner of the park is the Bear Flag Monument, a reminder of California’s freedom struggle from Mexico. Right in the middle of the plaza is the Sonoma City Hall where the Valley’s administrative work takes place. The building was constructed in 1908 and the design has four identical facades so that it looks the same from all sides. Many of Sonoma’s cultural festivals and parades begin at the Sonoma Plaza. Visitors often take picnics under the green canopy and the plaza is also the site for weekly farmers’ markets.

The Plaza is a great place for a low- stress family outing. There are lots of fun shops and eateries surrounding a beautiful, large park with play structure and pond. The Mission and Barracks are fun and educational sites to visit on the Plaza. I had the best latte at The Boulangerie!
Great shops all around, great variety for food options too. Stop by and spend half day here and you won't regret. afterwards, drive outside the center to some great vineyards nearby
Small town central plaza/park with a duck pond, fish pond, lots of shady grass and benches. Two kids play areas, historic, nice shops and restaurants facing on all sides.
I was there this time for the Tuesday Night Farmers market. I have always enjoyed the Sonoma Plaza. Beautiful place to bring your kids and family. A lot of nice places to eat right on the plaza
Lots of history. Clean bathrooms nice play area for kids. Smack in the middle of Sonoma. Beautiful.
