Staples Ranch "Neighborhood Park"?

Original post made by Billie, Mohr Park, on Aug 26, 2009

The Parks and Recreation Committee is meeting tomorrow evening (August 27, 2009) to discuss the Staples Ranch Neighborhood Park Master Plan. I don’t know what your idea of a “neighborhood park” is, but I envisioned a little more than two tennis courts, a restroom, a single picnic table, and a walking path around a Zone 7 water detention basin.

"the Staples Ranch "Neighborhood Park" has really just become a nicely landscaped tennis court and walking path."

I’m sure the intention was to keep the rest of us focused on picnic tables and parking spaces, and maybe Spear scale/Spearhead/Headwater, Salmon something or other.

Park this, Park that, Neighborhood on this side, Community on that, is all Gobbilty - Gook.

Call it what it is: Staples is an Auto mall/Condo complex – ala Dublin, Hayward, Fremont, San Jose, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, style.

Did I forget Tracy?

I would sure love to go to a dog park closer to my home. I go to the one in Dublin ,off of Doughity Rd. The one at Muirwood hurts my dogs feet.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
