Redwood Established

Roseville's eastern suburban development eventually ran into a dead end at Redwood Forest.

For years, only tourists ventured into the old growth forest to see its beauty.

5 SimYears ago, in 235 F.R., Redwood was founded.

Redwood was settled mostly by sims from the southern reaches of Riverside, though some came from the Soees suburban district.

Entering Redwood

State Route 3 is at this point fairly unused, as cummuters head west to the South End Industrial Park rather than to the south, where this highway runs.

The northbound lanes of SR-3 bend northeast into the Redwood Forest, which is currently protected as a Roseville State Park.

This exit leads to Redwood in the east, and the Soees Mall to the west. Pictured is the Redwood Resort, a destination spot for all those who love nature's beauty.

The first thing anyone who comes to Redwood from the highway sees is the boring Redwood Train station. A few hundred sims use this regularly to reach the far off industrial park.

From there, one encounters the beginning of the Redwood Strip mall. Behind is a minor skate park and in front is ample parking for the many tourists that Redwood attracts.

At the end of the strip we find the City Hall, School, Walk-in Clinic, Library, and Fire Station.

The bike path behind the Century Theater leads to this little roundabout park, centered on a small mayoral statue. Along with the statue is a plaque describing the history of the Redwood Forest.

These residences lie just west of the strip and are fairly reflective of Riverside's housing, the city where most Redwoodians came from.
