Happy Deer Hollow-een!

Original post made by Jennifer Fogliani, Whisman Station, on Oct 30, 2011

Since moving to Mountain View, I've heard many people rave about the beautiful Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve. I have been told that the 24 miles of trails are a great place to exercise.

Love Rancho, love Deer Hollow. My daughter did Deer Hollow Farm camp every year, starting summer after Kindergarten through 8th grade. Was her favorite camp year after year.

Thanks for sharing your experience at Deer Hollow! It sounds wonderful, and I would love to take my grandkids there some time.
When all is said and done, connecting with nature is a very good thing for kiddies, and I love the way your kids responded so positively.
I wonder if "city" children, like schoolkids in East Palo Alto, get the opportunity to go there. But I imagine that the entrance fee would be a factor for some.

Seriously Rosi? Can you be more blunt? I wonder is "city kids" in East Palo Alto get the opportunity? Why not throw in Oakland, or San Jose kids as well. ~Boy i wonder if Okaland has any places like this, or....man I wonder if the entrance fee is to much for poor people? If you dont know Deer Hollow is free most of the year, but im sure you knew that.

Jennifer, why did the voice choose you to write about your daily activities and thoughts? Im just curious.

@ Sean

I can't say for certain why I was "chosen" - the editors would have to answer that - but I think its because there are a lot of parents/young families in the community who are looking for things to do and can relate to some of my experiences.

Deer Hollow Farm is great, my 7 year old loves it, very nice to get outside and get some excercise as well. Have you been to Shoreline Park?

I haven't been to Shoreline yet but it's definitely on our list of things to do - sounds like there are a lot of great things to do there. Thanks for reminding me.
