Celebrate with us on March 30!

On Saturday, March 30, the City of Goleta will be having an opening celebration for our newest park – the Jonny D. Wallis Neighborhood Park! We know residents have been waiting a long time for this, so we have a special day planned. Join us from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. for activity demonstrations (see schedule below), food, fun and more. The new four acre-park is located at 170 S. Kellogg Avenue (corner of Hollister and Kellogg Avenues). You can learn more about the park and watch the construction progress here. This is a park for all ages, amenities include a skate plaza, multi-purpose field, basketball court, handball court, concrete ping-pong tables, bocce ball court, pickleball court, Bankshot basketball court (the first of its kind on the west coast!), walking path, picnic areas and fitness nodes. We are excited to share this park with the community and hope to see you on March 30!
