Last time I looked, Rinconada Park looked fine.

Last time I looked at the Baylands, the boardwalk was in a mess, the interpretive center was closed and an eyesore.

If any park needs money spent, then it is the Baylands not Rinconada.

Please look at Baylands before any city park that is in fine shape.

I agree Resident, Rinconada Park is more than adequate. With that thought in mind, why are our city leaders and elected officials discussing a non-essential park upgrade when they have no funding plan to pay for our vital infrastructure needs. Unless one counts another bond measure and tax increase as a funding plan. The reason we don't have the funds to pay for our basic civic needs is because we cater to the special interests and spend friviously on fluff, feel good projects, and non-essential services.

No improvements are needed for Rinconada Park, other than enforcing the ordinance that forbids drinking alcohol in the park without a special permit. Lots of out-of-town drinkers I. The park on weekends!

Don't miss out on the discussion!
