“Parking nightmare”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

The park was dead and dry. Mapquest took us to the wrong entrance and when we found the right one, we drove around for 15 min looking for parking, and left.

“Lovely place to relax and enjoy the lake on a boat”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I simply loved the place. The lake, the park, the bike trail and the cafe. Everything was great, and will go back whenever the weathers nice and we can make it. It was a super relaxing Sunday, we took a pedal boat. $25 for an hr. You get for up to the whole day, for different prices.
There's no fee to enter the park.
The cafe is simple, with a nice little menu. We had fish and chips and a breakfast plate with eggs to order, bread of choice, hash and bacon/sausages. Loved the food, fresh and nice!

“Pretty Park for Water Play in Mountain View, Small Cafe, Historic Home”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Shoreline Park is a pretty park in Mountain View. The water area is quite nice; small sail boats; paddle boats; and longboards. There is a nice small cafe by the water edge as well.

There is also a historic home here which on a few days each week they do tours through the home; it is called the Rengstorff House. The Rengstorff House is Mountain View’s oldest historic house and is a good example of Victorian Italianate architecture.

There are also areas for walking in the park, etc.

Admission is free; there is a charge to rent water sport equipment.
