"I'm not so sure about playing fields, but certainly parks and green spaces. It's what Palo Alto's known for."

Robert Menjivar

Supervisor at Starbucks

Emerson Street

"Yes, it's very important for children during their childhood. It keeps kids out of trouble."

Jennifer Rishy-Maharaj


Celia Drive

"There's lots of space at Greer Park. ... I think what we really need is a good dog park."

David Brown


East Palo Alto

"Palo Alto does not need new parks. I have a family member who works for the City of Palo Alto and he tells me how they waste money. ... We have (Martin Luther King) Park and they never use it."

Mary Wong

Stay-at-home mom

Ross Road

"I think Palo Alto could use more playing fields because of all the teams that utilize the green spaces. It's hard to accommodate all of them, whether it's soccer practices, lacrosse and all the other sports."
