I'd love it if Menlo Park had a downtown pedestrian mall similar to Santa Monica's "Third Street Promenade":
Santa Cruz Ave would be the natural location, but doesn't seem feasible given its necessity of connecting traffic between El Camino and west Menlo. But some part of parking area parallel to Santa Cruz Ave seems like a natural alternative (see link): Web Link
Of course parking structures on either end would have to be built and it probably violates leases, private property, etc. But I just thought I'd throw that out there to see if it's even remotely feasible, desirable, etc.
Thanks in advance for your feedback (good or bad).
