The park provides amazing sunset views. The pictures will be the proof! Parking is freely available by the roadside.

Shoreline park is one of the most beautiful anywhere. It sits on the bluff above the Pacific Ocean with a playground for small children, picnic tables for couples and families, steps to the beach and a look over the surfers on the Eastern bluff.

Gorgeous weather, a great bike path though a well maintained park along a beautiful beach. Spend time here and unwind. People watch, exercise or soak up the sun. A quintessential Santa Barbara experience

The park is great to walk a little, enjoy the view and take a bath if you go on summer. I was there in December and it was a little bit windy, but I like the view.

This is a public park. For the tourist, there is nothing to do but soak up some beautiful views, relax on the grass or a bench, and enjoy Santa Barbara with a ton of locals. Use it as a kickoff point for a walk to...More
