Great additions. Aesthetically pleasing is a big plus!

Perhaps some funding to keep the increase of creepy / unsavory people who hang out in the bushes smoking and drinking booze at bay. Littering too.

Their roaming around makes it scary for my wife to walk there alone in the middle of the weekdays, when the trails are less used.

Next, the city will need to focus on how to get more people to the trails. I would like to see bicycle boulevards and grade separation from autos. One reason I do not bike more is that it is dangerous along the major roads and too often drivers just do not pay attention. I can't also pull my son along in a trailer on the roads. A good place for a bicycle boulevard is Latham / Church. In which case, you can go from San Antonio Shopping Center to the Sunnyvale border. Davis provides many good examples about how to get encourage people to use bicycles.

I'm a frequent trail user and would like to see more benches and water fountains.
They also need to pave/connect the 0 mile marker trail head (Northern most) at the salt pond property line with Shoreline Park trails across the top of the levy/berm.

Even a gravel path would be better than having to walk down by the water line and back up. This may be trespassing and it smells awful down by the water.
