Goleta Old Town residents can look forward to new active, recreation space in their neighborhood in the coming years. Earlier this summer the City Council agreed to purchase a four-acre parcel of land near the corner of Hollister and Kellogg Avenues. Over the next six to nine months the City will host workshops for community members and residents to provide input on the types of facilities and recreational activities that should be part of this park. Once this process is completed, a design will move forward for approval and then fundraising will begin.
It has long been a desire of the City to provide additional park space in Old Town to add to the three existing active recreation spaces at Nectarine Park, Armitos Park and the Goleta Valley Community Center. Monies from Park Development Impact Fees and the City’s Redevel opment Agency provided the opportunity the City needed to purchase this land. The City is also pursuing grant funding for this and other open spaces.
