Been going to Shollenberger park for well over 15 years - started when there was just a porta-potty and small parking area. Times change - a permanent and clean restroom was erected and is well maintained. It has running water, locking doors and a flush-able toilet with paper provided. The main trail around the park is an estimated 2 mile,... More

This is the best walking trail of 2miles with lots of water fowl. Bike, run or walk with parking. Great place to walk during lunch hour.

Been here several times. A little hard to find the first couple of times. Mostly a walking place - not very much scenery. But at the far end of the park, it borders the Petaluma river. That is a nice place to stop.

The park is conveniently close to downtown Petaluma, just off Hwy 101, and offers a relaxing, well laid-out two-mile (or so) trail through some beautiful wetlands. The area is filled with wildlife, lots of waterfowl of course, but on our last visit the California drought was taking its toll. The wetlands have definitely shrunk, but they're still worth a look...

The surroundings along the river are very nice. It makes for a great place to walk or jog. There is an abundance of wildlife, especially birds of many types. The walking paths could use some upgrading as could the bathrooms. Also, the parking lot is way to small to accommodate the volume of guests

Walking he path which runs along the river at sundown is all you need for a peaceful brain cleaner. You will see birds, bugs, flying about. The river looks its best at sunset. It's a nice hour long walk.

Petaluma is blessed to have a gem like Shollenberger Park. The park is a 2 mile loop through wetlands and along the edge of the Petaluma River. There are always lots of birds and the area can look different from one visit to another depending on the time of year and how much water is in the middle. It's a... More

Walk on the river. Gets a little windy in the afternoons. The other side by the holding ponds is an interesting walk as well...

I walked the park loop twice so far this week. I have seen Canadian Geese by the 10's, at least 15 huge white swans, hundreds of ducks, a bunch of smaller black birds with brilliant red wings, and many other wild bird species. I can feel my blood pressure drop the minute I enter the walkways.
