Friends of Girsh Park

Join the annual “Friends of Girsh Park” campaign to the support of the Lester A. and Viola S. Girsh Park.  We are a very unique 501 (c)(3) foundation that owns and operates this wonderful 25 acre facility.  We rely on the community to help to sustain our ongoing operating budget.  25% of our operating budget is made up of donations and sponsorships that come from people like you.  Your donation will help to sustain not only the Park, but the programs and community events that call Girsh Park Home.

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.

Please consider becoming a Friend of Girsh Park to play your role in ensuring that this wonderful asset will continue to serve the community with high quality outdoor recreational opportunities for all. We thank you with all our hearts!
