Extensive Santa Barbara Park and Open Spaces List

Sisters at Orpet Park
It is tricky to create a list of all the parks in the Santa Barbara area. We are ridiculously blessed with beautiful, generally well-maintained parks. Some parks are city owned, some county owned and some owned by private organizations like The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County. Some have play equipment and some area simply small open spaces to walk your dog. Here is a link to our original resources. Here is the list we ended up with, surely incomplete.
