Petaluma Marina

River barges, freight trains, and the freeway cross paths at this historic intersection of railroad and shipping.  Cars zoom overhead on Highway 101 while yachts parade in and out of the Marina, and if you’re lucky, you’ll see a tugboat pushing its load upstream (you’ll have to wait longer to see the railroad swing bridge in action).  A water taxi service could connect the Turning Basin with Foundry Wharf, the Small Craft Center, the Marina, and Shollenberger Park.  It’s a bustling place, and the place you want to be to see the world go by.  The main areas of focus are: the Railroad Bridge Undercrossing, Swingbridge Overlook, Marina Point Overlook, and secluded Rose Garden Slough.
