“A great place for a walk by the bay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

I love this place! The views are beautiful and it never looks the same way twice. You'll find all sorts of wildlife, especially birds (I've seen hawks, hundreds of white pelicans, baby white egrets and night herons to name a few).
The view across the bay is stunning and you can literally walk for miles along the shore on a nice, clear path.
Treat yourself to a snack or lunch at the cafe by the lake and relax, watching the light on the hills and lake. A perfect place to take a break!

“Great place to get away from the city distractions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

There are many things to do here such as walk, run, kayak, picnic, even play golf. It's hard to believe it's right in the heart of Silicon Valley within a stones throw of Google. Great for families, couples, or just one. There are restrooms and a snack bar.

“The best Park in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

A great Park. By far the best in the area. The only downside is that there are not enough attractions for little kids.

“Shoreline Lake: a great way to spend a sunny day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Shoreline Lake is the go to spot on the peninsula to learn sailboarding, or just spend some time on a nice calm body of water. The is a great little cafe that sells breakfast and lunch items and serves beer and wine.

“Nice park!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

A little taste of the Bay Area. You're always going to get wind out here, off the Bay. Temps will be cool, but not cold like SF. Great for kites, skates, roller blades, bikes, running walking. Lots of trail options, can go a fair distance without looping.
