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.

For years, community members have fought to preserve this environmentally-sensitive and regionally significant open space from development.

Thanks to extensive community support, we have convinced the property owner, Davidon Homes, to sell 44 acres to us for a parkland gift to Sonoma County Regional Parks and to limit development on the remaining 14 acres to 28 mid-range homes. Click here to see a map of the proposed project.

And thanks to help from throughout our city and county, we raised the funds needed to preserve this special land. But we still need funds to clear all the hurdles so we can close escrow and then make the necessary improvements to connect it with Putnam Park, improving access for Petaluma residents and protecting this one-of-a-kind open space forever.

Please Help us Extend Putnam Park!

Donations up to $20,000 will be matched 1:1 through December 31, 2020. Funds raised will support administrative expenses associated with obtaining needed approvals and qualifying to close escrow on the acquisition of the parkland portion of the Scott Ranch property.

Yes! Please keep me informed about the plan to Extend Putnam Park.

Thank you! Together we can make it possible to extend Putnam Park.
