Children's Museum of Sonoma County
The Children’s Museum of Sonoma County (CMOSC) was founded in 2005. Rooted in current early childhood research, CMOSC engages children in joyful discovery experiences that develop foundational skills, create lasting memories, and spark a lifelong love of learning. The Children’s Museum’s experiential exhibits emphasize hands-on engagement and learning through play with a focus on art, nature, and science. After closing due to the pandemic, CMOSC re-opened to the public this spring!
Coffey Park consists of residential and non-residential properties bounded by the city limits to the north, Piner Road and Pinercrest Drive to the south, Piner Creek to the east, and the SMART rail corridor and Waltzer Road to the west. The 2017 wildfires destroyed much of the Coffey Park area, which has largely been rebuilt 4 years after the fire in part due to the work of Jeff and his fellow neighbors through the founding of Coffey Strong. Today, Coffey Neighborhood Park serves as a central gathering place for Coffey Park residents.
