A very nice park - especially with young children. Near the entrance there is a carousel (which was great except for the fairly rude woman who ran the ride), and there is a beautiful pond with koi and ducks. There are three parks that are perfect for young children (from 2 and up). Overall a nice inexpensive family outing.

Another iconic spot on the Santa Barbara Waterfront, Chase Palm park provides plenty of space for the more active tourist who's more inclined to throw frisbee, play some pick up flag football or soccer. Locals and tourists use the park extensively and it's an awesome venue to let some steam off and have some vacation fun at the same time.... More

Indiana cousins joined me for a walk through the park on a Sunday afternoon. It was a lovely sunny day, because it had rained the day before not all of the artists were there for the Sunday art show but that was fine, it was less crowded. My cousins totally enjoyed seeing it all and it made me appreciate how... More

Nice elements in this fairly small, linear park. The short stroll from one end to the other is enjoyable with a meandering path, very good landscaping, and some ponds. Along the way there's a very nice carousel and a great playground with a variety of unique elements.

Everything in Santa Barbara is beautiful. My good friend of 20 years recently got married at chase palm park. Setting was great, and the pictures came out stunning! Right by the beach and weather was perfect!

I've traveled the world -- Paris, London, Monte Carlo, New York! Hong Kong, Honolulu, Rio, Berlin, Cote Azure, Cann, -- on and on. You can't beat this strip of palm lined pavilion anywhere in the world. Green grass, ice plant in bloom, birds of paradise, the East Beach Grill at one end (don't miss the blueberry-wheat germ pancakes) and the... More

We have been going to the Chase Palm Park Arts and Crafts Show for the last 30 years. It is held every Sunday throughout the year. Don't miss it!

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

This has a full functioning carousel and is very affordable $2.00 and it lets adults ride it too, sign says 250 lb. and up sit on inside horse. The carousel is very old with lots of history, the park itself has a lot of kid stuff to do nearby, I don't know if a playground nearby is included in the... More
