Easy trails and great bay views. Weekends are very popular. Try to avoid the paved trails that allow bikes if you're walking - but if you're riding it's a great place, too. There's a park for young ones.

This park has something for everyone. If you like strolling through a lovely park and enjoying fresh air, this is a great place to do it. If you like riding your bike through a beautiful setting, this is surely the place. I love the sailing lake and the restaurants offer decent food and a wonderful place to sit and enjoy... More

Many walking trails that are by the San Francisco bay shoreline that takes in the local critter and bird habitat. Good place for picknics, kids, biking,... More

Family oriented park with everything from paddle boating to beautiful paths to walk on by the bay. Great bicycle paths that lead to bike trails that stretch to Palo Alto. Great place to picnic on the grass but watch out for geese droppings.

There is so much to do for most people here. There is a kite flying area, a golf course, a concert venue, a boating lake and you can walk or ride your bike for well over 30 miles on the levees. Some of the levees take you way out into the bay. There are so many types of birds here... More

Where else can you picnic on the San Francisco Bay? Here they have rental boats and a good place for lunch under an umbrella right on the water. Watching the kids and the grownups have a good time is always entertaining, the scenery is great with lots of ducks and geese, and the weather for most of the year is... More

We had a wonderful surprise walking in Shoreline Park, right in the middle of Mountain View. The paths were comfortable and overlooked water. There were boats to rent and places to rest, grab a bite, and enjoy the natural surroundings.
