Bayfront is my favorite park. It's a dump. Literally - it was the site of the local dump up through the 70s, and after closing, was refurbished as a park. It is woefully neglected by the city of Menlo Park, although the trash and recycling gets picked up regularly, and the bathrooms have (1-ply) toilet paper 90% of the time.

But the reason I love the park is because it's kind of a dump near a freeway in a poorer part of town near industrial areas. It means no busy bodies go there. It's where I can let my dog off leash, and no stuck up Palo Alto housewife is going to call the cops or feel her precious Brayden/Cayden/Ayden will be threatened by a small black mutt. (Yes, my dog is trained, has good recall, is non-aggressive towards dogs and people - my dog is solely interested in the jackrabbits and the Canada geese).

This is my go to park! Don't change a thing about it.

Minus one star because it still smells like a dump thanks to low tide in the marsh, and the wastewater processing plant.
