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.
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.
