When you think California you think crazy and crowded. This place makes you stop and think... where am I? This was a beautiful escape and worth the drive. I came and just walked around but you can paddle board, sail, run, bike, rollerblade or just sit on a bench and just be. They had tons of people there but everyone... More

So close and yet so far. As a long time resident of Mountain View, this spot, which is located at the end of the road going after entering Shoreline Park, is a great spot to relax, have some decent food, people watch, rent a water craft, learn to sail, or take in nature or bird watching. Parking can be difficult,... More

Beautiful Lake with great walking/running/biking paths. Best of all you can rent paddle boats, kayaks and windsurf boards. Tons of fun and you can invest as much or as little time as you like. Don't be fooled though - those paddle boats are more work than you think. Looks relaxing but maybe not so much.

My husband and and I go Shoreline Lake for walks - it is connected to Baylands along the bay and is a perfect place for a beautiful walk. It is flat, there are no cars, and there are lots of birds - I love it when I spot an egret, but there are usually lots of pelicans, geese, and birds... More

A great place to hang out with your friends/ family where you can choose to rent a paddle boat/ row boat or just kayak.. We rented a paddle boat for an hour which was for about 23$, not bad at all. They also have half day and full day options but i believe an hour is enough to go around... More

A very quick visit to Shoreline Lake and it's certainly a hidden gem! You'd never know this is hidden so near to the madness that is rush hour traffic in the bay area. Although I didn't partake in any of the activities on offer this time, it was clear that the Lake seems to be used a lot for school... More

Loved the whole area! Wild geese(?) & some smaller black birds are not afraid of people & are a delight. Green grass is welcoming for picnicking. Rengstorff house - built in 1867 & renovated circa 1991 - is a great place to look at, walk around & sketch. Parking space is enough for you to find a spot. Free bathrooms... More

I enjoy coming to Shoreline for different things. Most of the time I come to go on short hikes. There are a bunch of trails around the area that can span from a mile to a few miles. The scenery is always refreshing; view of the lake, park with families and children running, the baylands with the birds, watersports, etc.... More
