Begs the question of priorities, i.e. trail maintenance, tree safety, poison oak control - these are important things; gussying up East Peak parking lot is not.
Improved interpretive signage/elements
It would be great to have an interpretive panel next to the display showing how the water runs down the mountain, so people know what it is and how to use it.

East Peak should not be made to look like a landscaped parking lot for an office building in San Jose. The fewer improvements the better. Any money would be much better spent on reducing the huge backlog of deferred maintenance the Park is suffering from. Park staff particularly the Maintenance Supervisor should be directed to work full-time on the deferred maintenance and conservation of the natural areas of the Park and not taking on projects such as these. Or building mountain bike riding trails on former single track hiking trails like the Easy Grade Project.

ideally, rebuild the Inn which would incorporate a cafe and visitors center. The mountain holds so much history why not have a special destination location at the peak. It could be done in an esthetic environmental way and would look much nicer than the bathrooms and vistors center there now. People come to the Gravity Barn, look at the pictures of the old Inn and ask why don't they have something like that here now?
