This area for the proposed "park" would be much better served by turning it into a parking lot for trail access and to ease the congestion caused by the pre-school across the street and special events at Rancho school. There is already a very nice park at Rancho school and the new YMCA will also be close by. It could be nicely done with trees and low maintenance landscaping.
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot!
Don't you know, it seems to go, that you don't know what you've got until it's gone.

I like the idea of a staging area since there are none nearby. And isn't the Iron Horse Trail really a park? But it would have to be done very nicely.
Dear Editor, in interest of keeping your FORUM lively,
It is an obvious question to ask, "hasn't the Hemme neighborhood suffered enough?" Traffic from Rancho Romero jams the neighborhood and access to Danville Blvd. The coming traffic and other invasive results of the SRV YMCA will add to that abuse of a neighborhood.
To consider a parking lot for trail users at the corner of Danville Blvd and Hemme would further add to the attractive nuisances existing or being constructed. There are options for trail users, 1) you may park at YardBIRDS for access to the same trail segment, 2) you may park at Hap Magee an access the trail via the Camille bridge and access, or 3) you can park at Alamo Plaza or its trailhead for a longer walk north or south.
Our community of neighborhoods has failed to protect the Hemme neighborhoods from major organizational invasion and we should not fail to stop further imposition on our neighbors.
Now that should focus the commentary!
Did you notice that no one responded to Hal's consideration of Hemme neighbors? Do we suspect that your readers are uncomfortable with addressing the issues created for the Hemme neighborhoods by SRVUSD, Fire District and SRV YMCA?
There are many good ideas for incorporation into the land that was planned for a fire station and our neighborhoods discussion groups consider a very natural, low-maintenance garden with paths, sitting benches, and a picnic table bordering the Iron Horse Trail to be one good approach. We could add bike racks, a water fountain, and a map board for the trails in the area.
Lively proposal and debate, I believe, was Hal's invitation.
