Popular place tucked away in an industrial park - hard to find the first time. This is supposedly a great place for viewing waterfowl, but, unfortunately, the waters were all dried up. Still, a pleasant enough 2 mile circular walk to whittle away my beer...More

Nice place to walk around and around. The only problem is that is all you can do. Plus the bugs are atrocious. So be sure and put on heavy duty bug spray

I love the beauty and wildlife. I really enjoy seeing the numerous types of birds and occasional creatures. The walking trails seem to have captured many different types of fowl. My dog loved trying to catch birds (thinking she could while on leash) :)

A beautiful park that lets you experience the beauty of Sonoma County. Lots of birds, great views and a chance to walk around the Petaluma River. If you want you can ride a bike instead. Flat walking so anyone can do it.

We took a late afternoon stroll on the pathway around this wetland area that is a small part of the greater San Pablo Bay area. Popular with birding groups. The walk is on flat land. Birding lists available near the entrance.
