The City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department manages 21 playgrounds throughout the park system. Playgrounds are often the focal-point of a park and provide opportunities for children to engage in healthy play. Neighborhood Parks
generally have smaller playgrounds for younger children, whereas the larger Community Parks
tend to have bigger playgrounds for older children. There are also playgrounds at some Sports Facilities. Two notable playgrounds are Kid’s World
at Alameda Park, and the Shipwreck Playground at Chase Palm Park
. The interactive Parks and Recreation map shows where all of our playgrounds are located.
