Shollenberger Park is an amazing place in Petaluma to walk, run, or bike. The Park offers what in effect is a loop around a marsh that is home to a plethora of wild birds. There are two paths: one paved and one laid with gravel: a two-mile circular trail and a one-mile cutoff trail across an iron bridge spanning Adobe Creek and running through Alman Marsh to the Petaluma Marina. This park is dog-friendly. The Park features drinking fountains, a fishing pier, and restrooms.
