(0) A park is wildlife habitat, period. That must be preserved and expanded. Everything else is secondary. Recreation destroys habitat and expands the human footprint. So the presence of people, and the distance and speed of their travel, should be minimized. Vehicles, including bicycles, skateboards, etc. should be restricted to pavement, where they can't do much harm. 05/21/2017 White 65-74 years old None None

(0) Many of the trails in the parks are being overrun by invasive thistle - Milk, Italian and Yellow Star. This makes the hiking experience much less enjoyable and potentially dangerous, especially children. These invasive species crowd out native plants and trees which impact the native animals, birds and other wildlife. This in turn leads to a less healthy environment that leads to more dead trees and more risk of mud flows and landslides. 05/15/2017 White 65-74 years old None None

(11) It is imperative we add more parks and expand existing parks to protect watersheds and ecosystems from encroaching development. In addition, parks must be added closer to urban areas so that access is easier. Currently, the majority of county parks are a distance away from the urban core, and it would be nice if there were more parks nearby to suburban and urban areas. This could be achieved by purchasing ranching land and agricultural land at the edge of development to restrain building. 05/01/2017 Asian / Pacific Islander 12-17 years old None None

(0) While at Vasona Park this weekend I noticed several elderly and handicapped people having difficulty getting to the restroom from the parking lot nearby. I also had difficulty because I recently broke my foot so my husband dropped me off in front of the restroom and then drove back to pick me up. An elderly man made a u-turn in front of the bathroom to drop off his wife and then parked on the road in front of the restroom. Since there's a little space on the road there, perhaps that would be a good place for disabled parking. Thank you! 05/01/2017 White 55-64 years old None None

The original state, of these lands, before they were cleared for grazing, should be the new target for open space management. Bringing back more dense, stands of trees,, would help the fight in global warming, by increasing co2 collection and storage, and increasing the acreage of shade, in summer months.

We also see the need to make it more accessible to families who do not have the means to go on lavish vacations or even purchase camping equipment. Some of the parks are pretty remote and would be difficult to get to without driving to.
