Helen Putnam Renovation

Panorama Stairs at Helen Putnam Regional Park

What & Why?

Helen Putnam Regional Park is an older park (officially dedicated in 1985) that was in need of infrastructure, resource management, user experience, and aesthetic improvements.

 The renovation includes:

  • improving trails for all-season use
  • trailhead staging area enhancements
  • wildflower and oak regeneration management
  • way-finding and interpretive signage development
  • access improvements

Trail improvements to Pomo, Filaree, Pond, Yarrow, Panorama, Arroyo, and South Loop Trails are complete. Pond restoration planting was completed in spring 2020, and the pond trail and fishing landings completed in 2023. All new park signage in addition to two new interpretive sign panels were installed.

What's Next?

Final renovation work to be completed includes improvements to Overlook Point. We are also looking to improve and armor trail surfaces for storm and wet season conditions in 2024 for the Ridge, Arroyo, and Savannah Trails.  

Look for future Trail Work Day Volunteer opportunities at both our Foundation's website and at  Redwood Trails Alliance. We thank you for your support.
