Great place to stroll

Away from the tourist area. Wonderful place to stroll or sit and read or look at the beautiful scenery. Parking is easy. Bathrooms are available. Nice place to spend a morning.

Just off of Shoreline Drive, this park provides a wonderful view of the coastline. It is worth a stop and a chance to grab some photos.

Bike path for walking or small vehicles is a great way to take a stroll, see the ocean, and relax! Restaurants on the piers are fine, typical touristy stuff, and there isn't much "to do" unless you are booking a boat or fishing tour. There is the Little Toot boat taxi for a silly $5/pp ride if you're not up... More

This park is a great place to take a picnic any time of day. It is on a cliff and overlooks the water. Great place to walk or bicycle as well. On this visit we picked up a pizza in town and had a great romantic dinner for two.

Shoreline Park offers a neighborhood feel away from the crowded beaches near the wharf. It provides staircase access to the beach and a perfect location to sit and talk, picnic, or just stroll.

A beautiful strip of land with multiuses: Picnic tables, BBQs, walking paths, beach access, parking, and plenty of space to catch a sunset.

Our dog loved walking around the park and romping on the grass. There is plenty of parking at both ends of the park. There are benches and tables for picnicking. Toilets are available for the humans.

Lots of dogs and children. A small play area for children. Do not miss the stairs down to the beach. Best at sunset!

Really beautiful walk in the park with wonderful ocean views, benches to relax and steps that take you down to the beach. I can't say enough about the beauty of this park. I love it

OMG. To have a long park on the cliff overlooking the ocean and the Santa Barbara pier and a sweeping view of the beaches and cruise ships bringing tourists to Santa Barbara and little do they know the sweet part hides about a mile away . It is a busy park with lots of walkers at least when I was... More
