A More Wonderful Putnam Park

Petaluma’s Scott Ranch property is known for its open meadows and iconic red barns. The land is right next to Sonoma County’s Helen Putnam Regional Park.

Thanks to extensive community support, we have the opportunity to purchase 44 acres of Scott Ranch for parkland from property owner Davidon Homes and to limit development on the remaining 14 acres to 28 mid-range homes. Click here to see a map of the proposed project.

What’s Next

The City of Petaluma will review the updated environmental analysis of the project before voting on whether to approve the combined park and housing plan. If approved by the City, we can purchase the 44 acres for the park extension. Want to learn more about this project?
