A very pleasant and picturesque location to drive, walk or sit and gaze at the coastline and Channel Islands. Lots of space and green space. You’ll enjoy!

Santa Barbara is one of the most beautiful cities in California. It is a must see destination for anyone who visits California. I live in California and I am jaded by the beauty of California yet I never tire of Santa Barbara’s charm and beauty.

This is a beautiful little park on the Mesa in Santa Barbara. Amazing place to watch the sunset or take small children to the playground. Nice place to walk your dog too although they must be on lease.

The palm trees lining the street make for a very picturesque scene. Having the beach directly next to you with the shops along the roadside make for a very memorable (but very short) visit.

The park had parking (paid) and a skateboard practice area. Bikers and joggers have a lovely place to run/walk along the beach. Its nice but nothing special if you live along the Cali coast. The trees are picturesque and there were some interesting birds along...More

Best on a Sunday. An arts and crafts show is on the sidewalk each week. Fun to watch the displays. Also the volleyball games are something to observe. Let’s not forget the best part, the ocean, boats and people. Great promenade.

The day we arrived there was an amazing art show lined along the sidewalk. Very very talented artists. The views are amazing - beach in front and mountains in back - it doesn't get any better.... Traffic was the only downside.

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.

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.
