The City of Goleta is fortunate to have approximately 550 acres of city parks and open space.  Goleta’s parks and playground facilities consist of nine neighborhood parks, five community parks, nine neighborhood open spaces, six regional open spaces, one community center, and three mini parks. Exploring nature is an important part of the Goleta lifestyle and your parks and open spaces are opportunities for residents to experience the outdoors. The City of Goleta recognizes that local parks and recreation opportunities are an integral part of a happy, healthy, community and we strive to meet the needs of our residents. Enjoy!
