We're fortunate to have a range of water features, both salty and fresh, to enjoy in the Bay Area. Whether it's a pond, stream, estuary or bay, our local parks have used aquatic features for the public good. For instance, a simple pedestrian bridge is a work of art to contemplate and an invitation to explore the island that lies beyond.
On the other hand, the larger salt waters of Mountain View's Shoreline Lake provides opportunity for sailboarders to catch bay breezes and mingle with the resident waterfowl.
Meanwhile local government centers create parklands with artificial lakes and fountains as living works of art for our enjoyment. Is it blue enough for you?
