Shollenberger Park is yet another gift of living in Petaluma. It is beautiful wet lands that are protected for all to enjoy. There are 3 trails you can take to experience the natural beautify and wildlife, while walking or biking. The main trail is approximately 2 miles around.

It doesn't get much better than this for a slice of life with nature. Try taking it from the trail outside of the Sheraton Hotel, skirting the river, and culminating at the rusted bridge at Schollenberger...Walk the loop, and take in the natural habitat....making any day a gift, rain or shine.

The past few years have seen a dearth of waterfowl at Shollenberger due to the unprecedented drought.

I love Shollenberger Park. It is peaceful and serene most of the time. Best time to walk there is early morning when the sounds of the surrounding roads and city are much less.

this is a great place to visit summer, spring, winter - ALL YEAR. Lots of varied wild life - near the Petaluma River - very well kept up. Great nature sightings and sunsets are great there.
