Fun tree to see, and experience the size of the roots and just get a sense of the history of the town and appreciation for nature!

It's unbelievable that a fig tree could grow so large - larger than my house. The tree is so special that the City of Santa Barbara diligently protects it.

Nothing special besides that it's the largest fig tree in the world? Correct me if I'm wrong. But my fiancée and I stopped by on our way back home. Took some photos and climbed around. No more than 5-10 minutes to enjoy fully. Great spot to eat a quick snack and enjoy the shade.

Not sure why required so many characters to describe this tree - but anyway, it is really great tree. The roots are so high that my kids could easily play seek and find between them. It locates at the Amtrak station, you can't miss it.

Literally just a very large tree, free parking, right at train stop location so that's convenient. Not much else there. Drive there after state stree, spend about 20 min, take pics then leave.

The fig tree of Moreton Bay is huge and the biggest tree trunk I have ever seen. We took the trolley tour and the view of the tree and city is fabulous.

You definitely don't see such awesome trees everyday. You can drive by, stop for taking pictures and move on. It won't take you long, but worth to see

This is a very impressive old fig tree and definitely worth a quick visit. It's a very short walk from State street and parking is plentiful. Bring your camera!
