A Chance to Extend Putnam Park

A Community Resource

The current owner of Scott Ranch has agreed to sell most of the property for public use. Under this agreement, 44 acres – three-quarters of the land – is on track to be converted into an extension of Helen Putnam Regional Park.

This Opportunity Will:

  • Limit housing development on the property to 28 homes
  • Extend Putnam Park by 44 acres and create a new entry point to the park on the east side (near the intersection of Windsor Drive and D Street)
  • Preserve the red barns as historic landmarks at Petaluma’s western gateway
  • Protect critical habitat for the threatened California red-legged frog

The Putnam Park expansion will include:

  • A native butterfly garden
  • The restored Barn Center, permanently protecting Scott Ranch’s red dairy barns
  • Accessible seating areas and eco-friendly restrooms
  • Multiple trails, connecting Scott Ranch to the rest of Putnam Park
  • Native grasslands and wetland habitat for the California red-legged frog.
