Helen Putnam Regional Park
Our favorite spot for hiking and sightseeing! Beautiful view of all the hills .
A short drive away is a beautiful park - more of a stroll than a proper hike, with views that will make it worth the uphill climb.
Close in town, can walk from home about a mile away, or drive to back side parking lot in 5 minutes.
“Della Attoria Café is located in the old US Bakery building (circa 1860) in downtown Petaluma. The aromas of freshly baked pastries and breads have continuously filled the space for over 150 years. Visit this spacious and meticulously decorated cafe and enjoy delicious, wholesome food, beautifully prepared and presented. In addition to daily fresh bread and pastries, poached ranch eggs on Della toast jumpstarts a day like almost nothing else.”
“Brewsters Beer Garden is located in the historic district of downtown Petaluma. Occupying an open-air dining space with over 350 seats, Brewster's cuisine is focused on technique driven dishes influenced by Southern Carolina BBQ and a smattering of locally sourced and sustainably raised Petaluma producers and ranchers. (Think southern BBQ meets California produce with a refined touch of explosive flavors.) The dining space complements the food perfectly as guests are treated to outdoor seating in a historic setting, with the comforts of large heat lamps, fire pit, bocce court, childrens playground and live music stage. Brewster's offers an array of over 30 revolving local craft beers on draft, Sonoma and Napa Valley wine, and a full selection of spirits and cocktails. Brewsters was built for people that want more than just a good meal when they eat - they want a dining experience. Laid back, kid & dog friendly, and ready to have fun. Hours Tuesday through Friday: 11:30 a.m. - close Saturday and Sunday: 11 a.m. - close. Closed on Monday”
