I would love to see a portion of it restore with native plants like Ulistac in Santa Clara. Ulistac had been a nasty, weedy abandoned portion of a golf course 20 years ago - it was in much worse shape than Bayfront Park - but through steady volunteer efforts, it has developed into a beautiful nature reserve, with a surprising amount of wildlife. Even to do what they did with the 1 1/2 acre butterfly garden would be great.

This would be the perfect site for a frisbee golf course!

Remote-controlled airplanes, non-motorized gliders, and quadcopters - plz no way. Next thing you know folks will be flying around the place in their jet-paks.

More benches on the uphill paths for seniors folks and moderately handicapped folks to rest on.

Non-motorized model gliders are silent. Even electric gliders (motor used to climb only) are quiet. Banning them based on noise concerns is nonsense.

Distinguish by Noise, not whether or not it flys. Two line kites can make a lot of noise - are you going to ban them too?

This was a dump, a landfill, not a natural chunk of land. Let people use it in reasonable ways.

So currently what is banned is take-off and landings at Bayfront. They can legally fly over the park all day careful what you ask for.

Get rid of those hideous monster buildings going up on 101 that mess up the view of the mountains while walking on the bay lands. Who allowed that to happen ?!!
