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 included:
- improving trails for all-season use
- trailhead staging area enhancements
- wildflower and oak regeneration management
- and way-finding and interpretive signage development.
Trail improvements to Pomo, Filaree, Pond, Yarrow, Panorama, Arroyo, and South Loop Trails are complete. Pond restoration planting was completed in spring 2020.
Final renovation work to be completed is the installation of two interpretive panels, new trailhead and trail marker signage installation, and accessible fishing access at the pond.
