There's a nice little new park in Cupertino called Cali Mill Plaza. It's at the corner of Stevens Creek and DeAnza Boulevards. When I moved here 21 years ago to work for Apple, tilt-ups, office buildings, and strip malls occupied most of the area, but one corner of this major urban intersection was an anachronism, featuring the landmark Cali Bros. grain silo. In 1988, this relic of a different Cupertino fell to the wreckers -- it was gone, suddenly, in a single day. Office buildings, a hotel, apartments, and restaurants filled the spot. Over the years, plans to finish development on the corner were made, then fell through: movie theaters, another hotel, more apartments.
Finally, the city and the developer decided to devote the remaining space to a lovely urban park, which was dedicated this week. And of course, they honored the Cali family by giving it their name. That's kind of neat, although isn't it always the way: bulldoze the natives, then name the park after them.
Also: the park has free wi-fi. ;-)
