Wondering what activities there are for children? Check out the Kids section for child care options, sports, story hours or youth groups. For adults, visit the Community section to see where to find animal services, health care or a garden club. Outdoorsy folks will enjoy the many opportunities to appreciate our temperate climate in the Outdoors and Recreation chapter. And the more politically minded will want to know how to contact public officials, including members of the City Council and the many boards and commissions that keep Mountain View running smoothly.

In addition to the thousands of listings inside, you can visit mv-voice. com and find even more. Online you’ll also find information about our surrounding communities, including Palo Alto, Stanford and Menlo Park, as well as others in our region. If you’ve got content suggestions for next year, please email editor@ mv-voice.com. We appreciate your feedback.
