Community Services, part of the Parks and Recreation Department, provides outreach to underserved youth and teens, improves services to families, enhances neighborhoods, builds community pride through preservation projects, and creates a healthier community. We are committed to providing programs and outreach services to strengthen families, improve outcomes for children and youth, and create stronger communities.
The Parks and Recreation Department manages three community gardens: at Pilgrim Terrace, Rancheria, and Yanonali Gardens. The gardens are conveniently located near the Franklin and Westside Community Centers. These rentable garden plots provide Santa Barbara residents with accessible and low-cost gardens, where they can grow organic vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Call (805) 897-2560 for more information.
