PSCC Floathouse location view 1We’re here to get you out on the water on people-powered boats and boards. We hold boating and social events year round, including summer camps and races! Join us on “Sonoma County’s Longest Park”: the Petaluma River. See the calendar for details. Visit our Facebook page to keep up with progress towards The Floathouse, a board and boat rental center planned for Petaluma’s turning basin. Check out the plans for the Community Boathouse downriver, our second planned facility.  Let’s make every day “A Day on The River”!
