PSCC leads the initiative for a more walkable, bikeable, boatable river.

Ailing Camp 1 2011


Our vision is about community. We see our river as “Petaluma’s largest park”. A public resource, the Petaluma River should be accessible to all. PSCC’s goals are to build “The Floathouse” Small Craft Rental Center in the turning basin, provide even more programs to support small craft users, and ultimately to build the Community Boathouse.  All of these improve the community’s access to the river on human-powered craft.

We are available to you. PSCC staff are available to any community group or interested individuals to present about what we’re doing or programs we offer. If you are a member of a community group or an HOA or you and your friends just want to find out more, in person, let us know. We look forward to working with all members of the community to improve river access.

We facilitate progress towards a vibrant, accessible waterway throughout the city. PSCC acts as the fiscal agent for Petaluma Water Ways, which some of our members were instrumental in establishing, and are also happy to help educate members of the community who would like to help make a reality any of the projects identified in this project, including our rental center and boathouse.
