Meanwhile, San Ramon opens ANother park, including a dogpark (see article in today's SRExp about its new "Bark & Ride).
Time for the Danville leadership to consider other alternatives to take some of the overuse load off Hap Magee. It's a great dogpark, AND it deteriorates every year about this time when the turf just can't take it.
A similar concept to the SR Bark & Ride could be done at the Sycamore Valley/Camino Ramon P&R lot. Put a door in the soundwall, fence the area on the west side of the Iron Horse Trail from Sycamore to the north end of the freeway over-crossing, put down DG for surfacing and voila!
It'd need cooperation with East Bay Parks, but governments don't have problems working together, do they? Anyway, it's time.

As I sat quietly on the bench along the pond in Oak Hill, I looked across the unabstructed quiet toward Stone Valley Road. A beautiful pond, green lawns, lovely trees and a totally ugly solar power generation station as a backdrop that massively spoiled the view.
We need the water feature reaching largely into the air to cover the ugliness. My recommendation to Oak Hill visitors is to shorten your view to inside this lovely park and always look south.
I truly wish I was kidding,

Because the view of the chain link fence, heat-shimmering blacktop, and browned out grass on the bank below the houses is so much better then what's going in?
Yes, you are joking, even if you don't realize it. This is a trade of one non-natural landscape for another.
