“Birds at dawn!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

When my wife and I stayed in Mountain View for a weekend retreat, I drove each morning before dawn to Shoreline Park, all the way to the end of the road. The variety of birds I saw and photographed was amazing! I'll definitely be going there again.

“Nice place for a walk in the fresh air”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Park where San Antonio dead-ends and find the walking trails. Plan your trip early if you want to ride a bike fast or do a real fitness walk/run, because strolling families like this park in the mid-day, so you do have to watch out for others then.

“lots of water activities and kite flying”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

my 7 year old daughter did camp here last summer at the yacht club and did various water activities on the little lake, which she thought was fun. My kids and husband have gone biking around the park, great easy paths for kids. And we have also gone to the kite flying area which is nice.

“Great for biking and being near the water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Just a fun place to walk or bike. I can get there by bike easy from my place. It can be a little bit breezy next to the water but still a fun and easy ride.

“Great place for a walk or run”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

It's a pretty good place for a run or for dog walking. It's not far from home (south bay). I also took some good pictures here.
