Participate in Parks and Rec Month this July!

Join Us by Downloading Calendar, Park Passport and by Taking a Selfie

One of the best parts about living in Goleta is the number of beautiful parks, recreational opportunities, and open spaces for all to enjoy. That’s why the City is especially excited to celebrate Parks and Recreation Month which begins today, July 1. The Goleta City Council issued a proclamation at its June 21, 2022, meeting to officially recognize July as Parks and Recreation Month in the City of Goleta. In honor of this special month, the City wants to help the community celebrate all month long!

City of Goleta’s Parks and Recreation Manager JoAnne Plummer said, “National Parks and Recreation Month is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate Goleta’s 16 beautiful parks, the variety of recreation amenities available to the community, and the 14 breathtaking open spaces. Our goal is to get you outside this month especially to enjoy all Goleta has to offer.”

As a helpful tool to get you started, the City has created a fun-filled calendar of outdoor activities for July, highlighting an activity or event for each day of the month. Download the calendar in English or Spanish. Activities and events on the calendar are meant as suggestions or ideas but feel free to come up with your own way(s) to celebrate Parks and Recreation Month. The calendar also includes free clinics for various activities and sports at locations throughout Goleta as motivation to learn something new.

We also encourage you to explore all of our parks and open spaces in Goleta throughout July. Download our Park Passport in English or Spanish for a listing of all of the City’s parks and open spaces.

We would love to see you in action visiting our outdoor spaces – send a selfie and caption of what you like to for a possibility of seeing yourself on the City’s Facebook and Instagram accounts. Please use the hashtag #RiseUp4GoletaParks.

Thanks for helping us celebrate our parks, recreation and open spaces and the important role they play in the quality of life we enjoy in Goleta. Keep up-to-date on Parks and Recreation Month by visiting our webpage.
