This is a beautiful park by the beach. You can have a relaxing stroll, jog, ride a bike or just go to the beach and have a picnic. Great place to enjoy the sunny weather and people watch.

Shoreline Park is located on the cliff in Santa Barbara. It's about 1 mile all the way around and Easley parking. I live across the street and walk down most days that I'm home. There is access to the beach and a playground for children.

Wonderful walk on a sidewalk along the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Public restrooms are available along with grassy fields and a playground. You can keep heading east along the sidewalk to head down to Leadbetter Beach and the harbor. A must visit!

We drove by after lunch and it appears to be a beautiful place to simply sit and watch the ocean and the people walking by. Look the other way and you can see the mountains.

I wish I knew the answer to that question. I have been there a few times and will go again as my family lives in that area I have always felt that it was just plain luck to see them but if I find out I will post it.
