Bixby Park

By Carol at 11:23 pm on Friday, February 23, 2007

The City of Palo Alto has created Bixby Park, atop many years’ collection of garbage, near the wetlands of San Francisco Bay. Spring rains have stimulated the grass cover on the pole and concrete sculpture gardens.

On this sunny Presidents’ Day afternoon, hikers, birdwatchers, dogwalkers and bikers enjoyed the bay breezes in this very accessible new park.
