Parks & Trail Visitor Update

The City of Mountain View paused all non-essential services starting Tuesday, March 17 in an effort to slow and minimize the spread of COVID-19. At this time, it is anticipated that the City will re-evaluate a return to regular staffing and service levels by April 7, pending new direction from the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health.


How does this impact Shoreline at Mountain View Regional Park?

All facilities inside Shoreline Park are now fully CLOSED to the public. This includes the dog park, golf course, restrooms, Rengstorff House, Michael’s restaurant, and the Sailing Lake and Café. The golf course is not open to the public for any purpose, including the driving range and all practice facilities during this time. The play structure inside Shoreline Park is closed. Shoreline Athletic Fields and the associated playground are also closed.


The open space in Shoreline Regional Park remains open for the public to enjoy, but access to parking lots has been limited to reduce congregating. Please use official trails for walking or biking when entering the park. Dogs or other domesticated animals are NOT allowed inside the park at all in an effort to protect the wildlife.


Please follow all signage posted in the park. Signage has been added or modified to address the current situation with COVID-19.


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

Shoreline At Mountain View is home to an eight-mile network of trails, bridges and roadways for walking, jogging, biking and inline skating. Vista Slope and the nearby Crittenden Hill provide expansive vistas as well as open space for exploring outdoors. The popular Stevens Creek Trail originates in Shoreline and travels creekside nearly five miles through Mountain View. The multi-use Permanente Creek Trail extends from Shoreline At Mountain View over Highway 101 to Old Middlefield Road. Many Shoreline trails connect with other regional trail systems, including the Bay Loop Trail.
