Nice park on Shoreline Dr. which is what West Cabrillo turns into when you head up the Mesa. Great place for a bbq but it can fill up so plan on taking a small portable grill with you. The view overlooks the harbor and pier from an elevated position.

This park looks nice with picnic areas and some fall palm trees. There seems to be some kind of border perhaps a safe swim area or shark net? Nice sandy beach with water sports and adjoins to the marina or harbour. I think the shoreline park share the same sandy beach as Leedbetter Park.

This is a park that looks over the water and it is lush, often quiet and very relaxing. It is tucked away in a more residential neighborhood and is a wonderful place to simply relax and enjoy the scenery.

We found this to be the best view of Santa Barbara Harbor. Lots of locals walking dogs and kids playing. It's a small park. Parking was crowded.

We spent a few hours walking along the ocean, away from the crowds in the harbor and wharf area. There is a paved path all along the park, lots of benches and decent bathrooms, and plenty of parking. There were lots of people of all ages using the park and we found it very pleasant..

This beautiful public park is situated atop the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the Mesa Area of town. Depending upon the time of year, this park can become very crowded with locals and visitors, who often picnic. A great spot to walk your dog. It can sometimes be very windy...this is where the community has an annual kite flying... More

I just love it! A perfect view while taking a morning stroll or if you just want to chill out with your family, friends etc. It's been a while since I went there though but I am pretty sure that if you'll be in the park around 6-7pm you may see some dolphins jumping around in the water. During spring... More

This park runs along teh cliffside west of downtown Santa Barbara. The park is well kept but the reasons that it is worth a stop and a walk are the views. To the east are the beaches and pier near downtown. Offshore on a clear day are the channel islands. Nearer to shore are surfers, wildlife and the occasional whale.... More
