Shoreline Park @ Mountain View
I’m not sure how popular Shoreline Park at Mountain View is, but I heard of it only recently. I had seen the exit on 101 earlier, but it didn’t really get my attention. This is another piece of land near the Bay, much like Sunnyvale Baylands, but even better.
Created after being a landfill area for dumping trash, it has possibly reached the other extreme of beauty. The main attraction is the artificial lake. Surrounding it are large areas carpetted with grass, interspersed with trails for walking and cycling. It’s summer now and you get a good place to chill out.
You can set sail on a yacht or zip off in a boat. If you’re alone on the shore, you even have ducks (?) for company.
In the same area is a golf course and the Shoreline Amphitheatre. The latter possibly is a popular venue for events and is characterized by the twin dome-like structures.
