This is a view of Granvia Altamira entrance at Montemalaga Drive showing boulders that form a short path, which does not currently lead to any other paths.  However, it could easily be connected to the Altamira Path, as shown by the broad tan line that could be an access trail serving pedestrians in both east and west directions.  This entrance is across from Grandview Park, which has a trail that extends to the Olmsted Creek and Del Sol Fire trails and Malaga Cove Plaza. So, the Altamira Path would allow Montemalaga residents better access to not only PVE, but also to Peninsula High School and the Pederegal at Cornerstone School and its athletic fields.

Providing this connection would allow much better access to a 700 foot north section of the Altamira Path that leads to

To the left is a view of Granvia Altamira before an island was installed at a cost of $125,000, which is $75,000 over its budget  The views below are after the island was added, but without, a stone entrance sign, several  trees and ground covering installed, which will be included in the total costs. No street widening was needed, but narrower lanes were created due to the island, with what amounts to an unusable lane in the middle. Was the cost of this island, which was largely responsible for eliminating nearly $50,000 for Parklands, worthwhile?
