I simply loved the place. The lake, the park, the bike trail and the cafe. Everything was great, and will go back whenever the weathers nice and we can make it. It was a super relaxing Sunday, we took a pedal boat. $25 for an hr. You get for up to the whole day, for different prices. There's no fee... More

Shoreline Park is a pretty park in Mountain View. The water area is quite nice; small sail boats; paddle boats; and longboards. There is a nice small cafe by the water edge as well. There is also a historic home here which on a few days each week they do tours through the home; it is called the Rengstorff House.... More

You can go bike riding, small boat sailing, Kite flying. Bring a box lunch meet some great people. The kids love it... More

The lake area is great for getting out, walking, biking and general exercising. The bird life is beautiful and plentiful, especially geese. The lake water is fairly clean, but not for swimming. The aquatic center has rentals, and lessons if you want to learn how to paddle-board, windsurf or small boat sailing (although the services are quite pricey). The park... More

I like the park because of the lake - you could walk around it or rollerblade, run, cycle.. Boating is available in the lake and so is sailboating. They also have a shop selling accessories. I have walked the trails and you could spot bunnies and various birds. Restrooms are very clean and right by the boat rental area. Lots... More

We love coming here. It is a beautiful, well cared for park with lots of family friendly options. Our typical routine is a nice walk and late lunch at the Lakeside Cafe. You watch the sailboats and paddle boats from the outdoor seating area. Or you may choose to bring a picnic basket, rest on the grassy area while the... More
