Latest Park Design
In 2011 the City purchased a 4-acre site near the corner of Hollister and Kellogg Avenues for the purpose of developing an active recreation park there. The City is now in the process of designing the new park and wants input from the community!
On April 7, 2012, the City of Goleta hosted a site tour and public workshop related to design of the new (yet to be named) neighborhood park. City staff and the design team were joined by members of the public for a roundtable discussion and those in attendance provided input on the goals for the park and amenities they would like to see included in its design. This workshop was the second to be held since last summer.
An open house was held July 26 at the Goleta Valley Community Center Dining Hall to show the three proposed designs that came as a result of the previous input. These designs are pictured below (click on each one twice to enlarge). Feedback on the preferred design can be submitted to Claudia Dato at 961-7554 or email email@example.com.
Purpose and Need
It has been a desire of the City to increase the amount of active recreation space within Old Town Goleta for many years and is an identified need within the City’s strategic plan. With the purchase of this four acre parcel last year, this goal will become a reality.
The project is currently in the public engagement phase. Additional public input opportunities will be posted on the City’s website at www.cityofgoleta.org. If you would like to provide input on what amenities should be included in the park, contact Claudia Dato at 961-7554 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The City recently received a grant of $910,000 from the Proposition 84 funds. In addition, the City received a $10,000 grant from the Davenport Institute for the public engagement process. Additional sources of funding are currently being identified.
