Honoring Steve Katz
The Elings Park Foundation invites you to renewer or join the Elings Park Chairman’s Council. Your gift of $1,000.00 or more assists in funding our operations and helps sustain our extraordinary Park into the future. This 230-acre park is the largest privately funded private park in America, receiving no tax dollars or government funding, relying entirely on user fees and donor gifts.
Santa Barbara is blessed to have a one-of-a-kind “urban treasure” full of oak groves, hiking trails and playing fields with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean. For over three decades, visionary and dedicated community volunteers have collaborated to keep Elings Park a safe, thriving and vibrant resource for re-creation.
In an age before cell phones and the American obesity epidemic, the Park’s founders could not have conceived how vital Elings Park would become to our community. According to the Trust for Public Land, research has shown that community green spaces can reduce violent crime; counter stress and social isolation, especially for older adults; improve concentration for children with attention deficit disorder; enhance relaxation; and promote self-esteem and resilience.
As a thank you, we invite you to join us as we celebrate at the Elings Park Foundation’s Annual Chairman’s Council Dinner. You’ll hear exciting new plans to update, restore, improve and protect Elings Park. More importantly, this special evening will pay tribute to the legacy of an inspirational volunteer, Past President, park-booster, and avid tennis sportsman, Steve Katz.
