How often do you currently use trails? Once a month or less frequently
How do you currently use trails? (select all that apply) For recreation/fun
Are there issues or concerns you have with trails? I would like to be able to use them for daily tasks but they do not connect within the city and there are many places on our streets where no bike lane is available especially connecting Mission Boulevard and Mowry, Mowry and Peralta, Peralta between Paseo Padre and Fremont Blvd.
Is there anything else you would like to share about your current trail usage? I feel cautious about accessing the trails with my kids. There are many homeless encampments near the trails in Fremont such along the railroad tracks near the access to Alameda Creek from Shinn Street, near the railroad overpass behind the Vetaranary clinic on the corner or Mowry and Mission (also connecting to the Alameda Creek trail), around Stivers Lagoon, at our Main Library. I would like the city to reallocate funds to offer more services to help rehabilitate and provide addiction and mental health services, homes and job placement to homeless individuals to help them get back on their feet.

What trails do you currently use in Fremont? Central Park Trails, East Bay Greenway Trail (connects between Central Park and Irvington area)
How often do you currently use trails? 2-3 times per week
How do you currently use trails? (select all that apply) For recreation/fun
Are there issues or concerns you have with trails? I'd like to see expansion of bike trails around Central Park and vicinity. There is a trail along the soccer fields that should be paved. There is also an abandoned train track trail on the other side of the golf course that should be developed, and extended to the Kimber-Gomes area, as well as taken to Washington Blvd. This would allow access to more neighborhoods and could possibly result in a ~4 mile circle, without having to traverse any roads if a second pedestrian bridge is built over Paseo Padre. (Look a a map to see what I mean.)
Is there anything else you would like to share about your current trail usage? Other than the Central Park and Irvington Trail, I use bike lanes but some of the roads like Mission Blvd, Paseo Padre, and Fremont Blvd have heavy, fast moving traffic and are very scary to use. I do use the Alameda Creek Trail a couple times a year, but drive my bike in a mini van to a trail entrance. I live in the Mission SJ area. I also got to Sabre Cat Creek sometimes. It seems a trail to nowhere, but is pretty. There is also a trail next to MSJ High School that I visit frequently. It looks like it could be extended south, but it is gated/closed, so I dont know where it goes.

Which trail corridor in Fremont is your highest priority for improvement? Central Park, Mission area.
Is there anything else you would like to tell us about new or improved trails you would like to see in Fremont? I live near the intersections of Paseo Padre and Driscoll. So, I can only speak from that perspective. I feel a bit trapped by Mission Blvd, 680 and other high traffic roads in the area. I can and do stop at traffic lights, dismount, press the ped-crossing button, remount and cautiously cross the roadways (not 680 of course). But, I also realize someday I could get hurt, so biking more than a few miles locally is intimidating. If my kids told me that they were going to bike across town, I would be fearful. Therefore, I'd see bike/ped dedicated trails as something very positive.
What is your primary mode of transportation for getting to work or school? Do not commute to work or school
In what neighborhood do you live? Mission San Jose
What is your age? 45-59

How often do you currently use trails? 2-3 times per month
How do you currently use trails? (select all that apply) For recreation/fun
Are there issues or concerns you have with trails? We walk to Central Park as we live in Irvington and enter by the waterslide. There is no walking path (sidewalk or crosswalk) across the parking lot to the sidewalk that runs in front of the water park past the skate park. creating a clear pathway for kids safety would be appreciated.
Is there anything else you would like to share about your current trail usage? The back side of the Central Park trail is an eye sore. Trees and foliage along with expanding the trail would be appreciated. There is so much room for more potential trails if trees were planted there. Seattle has some parks that has trails like this and it was a beautiful experience.

Are there issues or concerns you have with trails? There needs to be better trail etiquette particularly during impacted hours. Often groups with large number of pedestrians will congregate together across the entire trail blocking passage by cyclists. Sometimes cyclists ride too fast. There needs to be more signage on trail etiquette and perhaps maps showing connectivity to streets or to other trails.
