Shoreline Park is a park in Mountain View, California, USA. It was originally a landfill for San Francisco garbage. The city park was dedicated in 1983[1]. Shoreline Park features a golf course and a 50-acre (200,000 m2) artificial lake. On the lake's eastern shore is located the Shoreline Aquatic Center, which offers sailboat, windsurfing, kayak, canoe, rowboat, and pedal boat rentals, as well as sailing, windsurfing, and kayaking classes. The adjacent Shoreline Cafe is open daily and offers a variety of food to lake goers. A video on the history of the park is available at the Mountain View Public Library. It is also the location of the West Catholic Athletic League's second cross-country league meet every year, which is hosted by nearby Saint Francis High School [2][3].

The park golf course, known as Shoreline Golf Links, is an 18 hole links style course, with a pro shop and driving range, and is open to the public. The Rengstorff House, a historic Victorian mansion moved to the park from its original location elsewhere in Mountain View, and Michaels at Shoreline Restaurant, are also in the built up area of the park.

Walkers, runners, bike riders, et al., can enjoy miles of paved and unpaved trails, some of which are part of the San Francisco Bay Trail. A good description of a loop trip can be found here. The trails connect to the Stevens Creek Trail at the eastern edge of the park and Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve on the western edge.

Through the developed park, one reaches a wildlife refuge at the edge of the bay, where many birds can be seen at almost any time.
