Parks & Trail Visitor Update                        

The City of Mountain View will be pausing all non-essential services starting Tuesday, March 17 in an effort to slow and minimize the spread of COVID-19.

How Does this Impact City Parks?

The new Public Health Order is to ensure that people remain in their residences and minimize social interactions outside of their immediate family unit.  However, you may leave your residence for reasons specified in the Order.  One of these reasons is to engage in outdoor activity that does not involve close contact with other people.

City Parks and trails remain open from sunrise to half-hour after sunset for the public to enjoy fresh air and get exercise. When visiting parks, please be aware of appropriate social distancing for yourself, your children, and your family members.

In an effort to further minimize the spread of the virus, all park playgrounds and similar equipment are currently closed. Playgrounds are “high touch” surfaces and should be avoided at this time.

 How does this impact Shoreline at Mountain View Regional Park?

Shoreline Regional Park remains open for the public to enjoy the open space and utilize the official trails for walking or biking. Dogs or other domesticated animals are NOT allowed inside the park in an effort to protect the wildlife.

Golf course, driving range, and patio at Michael's are now open. Sailing Lake operating for Summer Camps, instruction and rentals. 

Portable restrooms are available at the Kite Lot and Dog Park.  

If there is an emergency in any park, please dial 9-1-1.
