Spent some time this Labor Day at an old favorite family haunt and was very disappointed to see the state of the boardwalk into the Baylands. There were many people there, hiking, biking, strolling, picnicking, sailboarding and it was sad to see how the area is being left to fall into disrepair. The boardwalk is now a danger to walk on. My kids when they were young used to race along to the end and enjoy pretending to be Billy Goats Gruff looking for the Troll.
Another family favorite in Palo Alto is going the way of the Palo Alto Bowl and the Mitchell Park Wading Pool. Just a fading memory.
