Our parks are filled with scenic spaces perfect for anything from a picnic to a large-scale community festival. Many of our parks are go-to spots for wedding ceremonies, too! Here's everything you need to know as you reserve a slice of Santa Barbara's great outdoors.
Most Santa Barbara parks have places to picnic, and there are drop-in picnic sites in parks all over town. You don't need to reserve those. The sites here do require reservations, so before that special birthday party or celebration, be sure to stake your claim to your favorite spot!
