Foothills Park Set to Open to the General Public in December

NEW BLOG: Foothills Park Set to Open to the General Public in December

A majority of the City Council voted this evening to open Foothills Park to the general public. The Council also voted to continue the maximum capacity of 1,000 persons at one time (approximately 370 vehicles) and to ensure that Palo Alto residents have first access to reservations for Towle Campground, Oak Grove Picnic Area and the Interpretive Center Meeting Room. The Council voted to temporarily reduce the maximum capacity to 750 visitors at one time (approximately 250 vehicles) for the first 90 days of opening Foothills Park to the general public. They also directed staff to return to the City Council and Parks and Recreation Commission with proposals on entry fees, capacity, and park management/environmental integrity studies and follow the City’s renaming process to consider renaming Foothills Park. A new blog provides more about the City Council decision and next steps including details on opening plans for Foothills Park to the general public.
