Para-sailing, BMX bikes, radio-controlled cars are all advertised as featuring and the facilities are all there, complete with a small stadium for the BMX bikes ; however, the two times we visited we only saw the para-sailing because organization appeared to be very poor, with websites lacking specific dates for activities, and phone contacts appeared to be equally ignorant of activity schedules.

Whether or not you are into non-powered flight, Elings Park makes for a wonderful visit for watching non-powered flight, or even participating in paragliding, solo or tandem. This is one of the Gem's of Santa Barbara and I don't know of another American City that has a paragliding, hang gliding park available within the City. It is also a fun place to bring a lunch and watch folks fly.

Next to the ocean, lots of open space with views and activities like mountain biking, para sailing, hiking. There are sports fields soccer and baseball.

Attended a family wedding at Elings Park and was so pleased with everything involved. Located on the top of a hill overlooking the ocean on one side and the hills on the other, the cool ocean breeze kept the temperature pleasant. The grassy amphitheater was the perfect setting for the bridal party, and the seating was ample for a small to medium wedding. A short walk away was a grassy area suited to a reception, and just beyond that was an area that was able to accomodate a fairly large seated dinner. Food and supplies had to be brought in, but the effects were truly wonderful. Indoor permanent bathrooms were available and that was a plus.

Paragliding is from South entry. You can drive up to the top where paragliding group are gathered. The view was beautiful and paragliding seems fun. Many people were there in the morning around 9am and they can fly by themselves within few hours. Very cool.
