I give this place 5-stars because the carousel does the trick every time. If I'm in the area and my daughter is with me, it's a guaranteed stopping place for us. My daughter leaves here happy and satisfied. We usually ride twice. You can't beat this type of entertainment, and it's a really cool spot. There are homeless people in... More

Stopped by this park for a lunchtime picnic. After the picnic we visited the carousel. Despite the fact that it says a minimum of 4 must be there for the ride to start the operator allowed my son to ride it alone. We found large koi and freshwater turtles? in the small park lake - which my 2 year old... More

What a nice park. We walked and biked the length of it and beyond a few times while vacationing in Santa Barbara. We loved the art show and all the vendors booths. We'll be back for sure.

Parents and kids alike will enjoy finding the various whale statues "swimming" through the grounds along with the sculptural lighthouse and other structures. With a duck pond and a nearby carousel, there is much for the kids to love and their adults to appreciate.

Leave it to Santa Barbara to have multiple parks on the ocean! Walk, ride a bike, have a picnic, read a book, or drive by slowly and enjoy the view. This is a pretty park right in town.

This (and Shoreline Park) are the cruz of Santa Barbara. Stand on the grass under a swaying Palm tree and look out over the Pacific ocean. Notice the bueatiful sailboats gliding by. Watch the surfers, paddleboarders and the dolphins play in the water. Now turn around and look back at the mountains. Notice how the afternoon light makes the mountains... More

Chase Palm Park has a nice childrens play area in the central part, a nice stage for outside performances, and very nicely restored carousel (which is perfect to ride at night time)!

If you go to Chase Palm Park preparing for a quiet picnic and a swim, you may be disappointed. The beach is not pristine; there is a large skate park right next to the beach; and you will find homeless people sleeping there. What is really great about the park? The playgound, ponds, and carousel on the other side of... More
