This is a terrific place for young children and families. It was designed to combine play with education about native flora, fauna, and early inhabitants. The play equipment is uniquely designed for this purpose. It has unshaded places for adults to sit and observe and nearby places to eat when the kids need food. We bring our grandson there on...

This is a great area to bring children of all ages. It's basically a very cleverly conceived playground with a Carpinteria theme. Whenever we have gone there it is just a riot of laughing, giggling kids and proud smiling parents. I'm smiling just thinking about it.

My kids are 8 and 9, and they were bored here. The play area is really beautiful and interesting, and it did hold their interest for a very short time; they liked the animal statues and the canoe. However, the statues were too hot to sit on, and there were no swings or anything. They were bored after about 10... More

There is not a whole lot to do here but my kids seem to like it. When walking from the campsite through Linden Field to downtown my kids like race to the playground and go down the roller slide and meet us at the other end. Its great for when the day starts overcast and you dont want to head... More

Nice little park for kids, chances to climb, and a little history lesson about the local indians. Parking can be a litle tight on busy, sunny days. Also a bigger park next to it and just a short walk to the beach.

My 2 and 5 year old LOVE this play area! They could happily spend hours there. I really appreciate it being fenced in, smartest thing ever in a playground. Lots of great landscaping and seating for the parents. Large field beside it, great for a picnic. Beach right down the street. The play area itself is like a little history... More

This park is a small, object filled area. The best is that the parkmis adjacent to a large, grassy field. The down sides of this park, directly next to train tracks and main street with traffic, noise, dust, dirt. Children enjoyed climbing around, but got bored quickly, and little one frightened by train going by so close. We went to... More

I had my three grandkids for a weekend. I wanted to take them to the best beach in California. Once they finished playing in the sandy beach we walked maybe 100 yds. to this wonderful playground. My youngest granddaughter age 18mths loved going down the slide that has rollers that must of been a great massage. The seal and dolphin... More
