Santa Rosa Pumpkin Patch
Located on a 30-acre farm off of Stony Point Road in Sonoma County, the Santa Rosa Pumpkin Patch is definitely a must-visit attaction for families this fall. While its address is in Santa Rosa, it's actually located in the rural area just outside Rohnert Park, making it an easy trip from Marin.
Santa Rosa Pumpkin Patch is popular, and for good reason—there are a ton of fun activities and games here for the whole family. You could hang out here and stay busy all day! Of course, don't forget to head out into their giant 10-acre pumpkin patch to look for that perfect pumpkin, too.
A $2 wristband gives you unlimited access to most of the activities here, including giant corn box, pedal trike races, tire swings, a sunflower maze (you can cut and buy the flowers for $1 each), a hay maze, a nine-bale-high hay tower, and games like pumpkin tether ball, corn hole bean bag toss, pumpkin checkers and tic-tac-toe, and the Barnyard Ballzone. Kids 2 and under are free.
For an additional fee kids can jump on the enormous jumpy pillow, ride down the 24-foot inflatable slide, and visit the animals in the petting zoo. Other attractions include Pumpkin Blasters, tractor-drawn hay rides, and their famous eight-acre corn maze.
Like most pumpkin patches, food—including hot dogs, chili, and nachos—and drinks are available for purchase, and you can relax and eat lunch in the shade in their large covered picnic area.
