Any chance of while they are at it in getting some proper restrooms out there. The portapotties are not very hygienic or fun to use.

As a cyclist, I hope that the Adobe Creek Trail (and other trails in Palo Alto's baylands) will be paved - perhaps as part of this project. I don't enjoy riding on pitted paths and over rough gravel. Given how popular Mountain View's paved paths in their baylands are for cyclists, I think many would agree with me.
