Be Part of the Stow Grove Park Master Planning Process

The City of Goleta is currently in the process of developing a Stow Grove Park Master Plan Design and community input is a key component. We are excited to bring the community together to talk about one of our most treasured outdoor spaces. The City will be holding an in-person public meeting in April (date coming soon) to allow the community the opportunity to express their desires, passion and concerns to the team. Sign up to receive emails about the project at and be notified about the meeting. 

This process will allow the City to gain an understanding of what the community desires in this park. We are working with a consultant who will utilize the information gathered at public meetings, as well as past and future surveys, and will develop a conceptual plan for consideration. Once the plan has been chosen, the City will have the opportunity to construct the entire renovation project at once, or break the park project into phases and construct each phase as funding allows.  


In 2020, the City of Goleta reached out to residents to hear their thoughts on Stow Grove Park and what types of improvements they would like to see. As the results unfolded, it was determined that the best approach for improvements would be to develop a Master Plan Design.

In December of 2021, the City Council awarded a professional services contract to KTUA design firm to develop the conceptual design for the Master Plan and facilitate the public outreach process.  Efforts are currently underway as the consultant team is gathering survey and inventory data on the park facility. The team is utilizing the information from the previous survey and is developing a new survey that will build upon the data already collected.

Any questions about the project can be directed to the Parks and Recreation Manager, JoAnne Plummer at
