The 25-acre Girsh Park, in the heart of our community, is beautiful, spacious, perfectly located, and used from morning to night by young and old for active, healthy, family-oriented outdoor recreation. As the only active recreation park in Goleta, it is used by an array athletic organizations and teams from Dos Pueblos Little League, AYSO, Santa Barbara Women’s Soccer League, and Central Coast Soccer League, to the Goleta Valley Dog Club, 4th of July Fireworks festival, goleta Egg Hunt and California lemon Festival. One statistic says it all: Over 350,000 visitors will enjoy Girsh Park this year.
