Don't miss the artificial wetlands south of Shollenberger. Lots of frogs and birds. Lots of information about the water treatment facility.

The day we went it was too cold and windy to enjoy . The wetlands had dried up due to the statewide drought. The signage was confusing among all the businesses.

This park is a great little walk. I love watching all the different birds in the area. However, the last time I went, the water was incredibly low due to the drought.

The destination of my daily bike trip is Schollenberger Park. Wending my way from town center, the sweet reward of this sanctuary makes it my personal local treasure. A wonderful place to note the changing seasons, wildlife, and commune with nature.

Love this little park! There is a nice little loop about 2 miles. In the spring and fall there's an abundant of shorebirds in the ponds and land birds galore. It's a beautiful walk in nature.

We came to stretch our legs during a recent trip to Petaluma. This is a great stroll through ponds and wetlands near the river. There are a few geocaches there also. Certain time of the year swans are on the ponds, but this time we saw avocets, egrets, blue herons, various ducks, and I think an eagle or some large... More

I adore Shollenberger Park. It's totally unique and filled with tons of birds and other animals that are absolutely gorgeous to see firsthand. The walking trail is flat and in the bright sun, so be sure to bring a hat. And use the bathroom before you begin your hike! Also, at certain times of the year, the algae will cause... More

Depending on the season, the water at Shollenberger varies in existence. More water = more birds to observe. Part of the path is paved (1/3-1/4) and the remainder is DG type of material. You can see the Petaluma River (slough) from the path. Good place to walk with your friends, family on this circular path. Can get quite breezy depending... More

If it's not raining you must go during the spring or winter. The variety of birds and wildlife is astounding. The walk is easy, can be made longer or shorter depending on our route, and filled with gorgeous scenery and music from the nature. It's my go to place when I'm not in the mood to exercise because it's an... More
