This is a great place to walk, run, bike, bird watch, meditate, meet up with friends, or admire scenery and photograph it. Now that we have water again we have an abundance of birds there. The ground is level - so walkers, canes, electric chairs, or even manual, can manage on this flat path. This is fun just to visit,... More

This is a great place to go for a walk with your dog or with someone else. I love it when you can see the baby swans. It's also a great place for people who like to bird watch. On several occasions we have had beautiful snakes just catching some sun on the path. It's a flat walk that's great... More

Shollenberger Park is a great place to go for a long walk. There are usually birds of several varieties around.Sometimes deer, turtles, and other wildlife.

Looking for a casual walk to enjoy nature. This is the place. Lots of wild birds flying overhead and ducks crossing the path. Take a seat and enjoy the peacefulness of the Petaluma River. Local rafts and row boats come by. Decent size parking lot to accommodate your car or just park on the street and walk in.

As our last activity for the New Year's Day weekend, our foursome stopped at Shollenberger Park for a twirl around an inland marsh astride the Petaluma River. The site has a curious approach: you feel like you're driving through an ordinary industrial park with one- and two-story offices...about as far from natural beauty as you're likely to get, and then...WHAM...you...

A very nice open space area for dog walkers & bird lovers. But we were disappointed in the lack of waterfowl. There are better places to watch.

If you like to observe shorebirds, this a great place to take an easy flat walk. There are also a few raptors and marsh birds. Easy loop trail back to the parking lot.

This is a wonderful park for a jog or a walk with the dogs. There is a water fountain at the beginning as well as restrooms. The trail takes you along the marshlands and along the Petaluma River. It also adjoins Altman Marsh, a beautiful preserve where birdwatchers commune with the fowl. Thoughtful placards describe the birds that inhabit the... More
