Clarke Ranch is a beautiful 24 acre parcel of currently undeveloped open space adjacent to the Wetlands Viewing Area and Napa River Bay Trail. The City acquired the land in 1999 and it has since been left largely untouched. In 2009, the City Council adopted a General Plan Amendment to designate Clarke Ranch as Open Space and approved zoning regulations for Clarke Ranch to be maintained as Open Space, Recreation, and/or Wildlife Conservation. Currently, Clarke Ranch is home to both our local 4-H and Spirithorse.

Community input was instrumental in getting to this point. We are so grateful and excited to see Clarke Ranch’s future in our community. From here, the City will apply for grants to fund the next steps of the project, design and construction. We anticipate this will take a few years. We are hopeful to see initial phases of the Clarke Ranch Master Plan implemented beginning next year.

In 2011 the City began a Civic Engagement Visioning process in order to discuss the future of Clarke Ranch. In late 2016, the City hired RRM Design Group to begin the Master Planning process for the site. On November 7, 2017, the City Council approved the Clark Ranch Master Plan.
