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.
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 in 2011, this goal will become a reality.
Construction drawings are currently being made and the City expects to do additional outreach on the skatepark elements this fall. The City hopes to be able to break ground on the park in 2014.
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.
