Helen Putnam Park reviews
Hilly but not too challenging hiking trails make for a good work-out close to Petaluma center. New parking lot has plenty of space. Good restrooms, kids play area and sheltered picnic tables.

Beautiful park with beautiful views. We came here on a 65 degree days and loved the views. There were many folks riding horses, which was fun to watch. Lots of steps in some places = good workout.
This park is wonderful for Hiking, mountain biking or Horse back riding. The trails are well maintained and have benches to sit and enjoy the views. I have been coming here for years taking my daughters fishing in the pond. Come out and enjoy the park with its abundance of wildlife and view of rolling hills. There is also a picnic area with playground for kids…
