Every time I visit something new is happening here. People playing soccer, art walks, picnics, kites, you name it!! Great please to walk your dog or stop and take a break from walking, running, or riding on the beach path that runs by.

I jogged and/or took a walk here everyday during my stay in Santa Barbara. Gorgeous views on a sunny day!

It is a wonderful paved walk along the water and a great place to people watch. There a quite a few free parking lots scattered along the drive with great place to look out over the water. It has everything from cliffs with no beach access to stairs down to a sliver of rock beach to areas of sandy beach... More

Ride our bikes along the shoreline park. Amazing views of the sea and mountains. Stopped at the skateboard park for entertainment.

We parked in one of the free lots, it was mid-week so easy. On weekends I think it gets very busy. Great walking in both the park and surrounding neighborhood. Spectacular views from the park out to the ocean and around. Nice way to spend some time.

We decided to take a little ride to Stearns Wharf. We drove the beach route stopped for a bit. The views are wonderful. You can drive out on the pier which is pretty cool.

A little different than getting down in the sand and water. We watched surfers and paddle boards out in the small surf and about a quarter mile or so off shore a sail boat race. Nice breeze. Probably around 12 to 15 knots. Sails full but boats not to heeled over. Shore line is a bit rough. Jagged type rocks... More
