Shoreline: open to out-of-towners???
Original post made by MViewer on Jul 1, 2008
Anyway, if Palo Alto can be so snooty about their parks, then I was wondering if Mountain View gives the same treatment to non-residents visiting Shoreline. Seems like we should. Not very neighborly though, is it?

One of the bones of contention in PA I am afraid. Many residents want to keep it to themselves due to not over-crowding reasons and possibly angst with Stanford.
But historically, when the Park was first purchased/opened way back when, Palo Alto asked the neighboring cities for help with the costs. They declined so Palo Alto opened it for PA residents only.

Surrounding cities didnt help with Shoreline costs, either (in fact, because of the asinine taxation plan for the whole North Bayshore region, our city and schools suffer quite a bit thanks to Shoreline). Public roads lead to Foothill, and fire protection is provided regionally. That old arguement doesnt wash with me, I'm afraid.

No, our parks are open to all. We're not as snooty as PA :)
