The Goleta Guide to Park Reservations

The City of Goleta has only one park, Stow Grove, in which reservations can be made. Both Girsh Park and Goleta Beach Park offer reservations as well; Girsh Park is a private park and Goleta Beach Park is operated by Santa Barbara County. There are also a number of parks with picnic tables in Goleta that can be used on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are interested in renting Stow Grove Park for a birthday party, family gathering or a casual Saturday with friends, the City does want to remind you of the following:

  • Your reservation cannot be confirmed without a completed form and payment
  • Make your reservation early as the park does fill up
  • Stow Grove Park opens at 8 a.m. and gates lock at sunset; items may not be placed on tables before 8 a.m.
  • Open flames are not allowed (No outside BBQ’s)
  • Amplified sound is not allowed
  • Vehicles allowed in parking lot only
