Welcome to Elings Park

More than 40 years ago, the founders of Elings Park had a unique vision for this spectacular site: To provide recreational facilities in an exceptional setting for the benefit of all citizens of the Santa Barbara area. As part of their plan, they insisted that the park would be created, maintained and operated without the use of a single taxpayer dollar.

From the park’s beginnings in 1965, its founders – under the leadership of Jerry Harwin – knew this spot halfway between Goleta and Carpinteria would be ideal for the recreational needs of a highly active community. Indeed, today that Elings Park Foundation provides a place for sports and athletic endeavors for people of all ages, from all neighborhoods, and from all walks of life. It also serves as a model for other communities, demonstrating that a non-profit foundation can operate an extraordinary park without the need for government funds.

In January of 1974 an additional 8.71 acres of school property adjacent to the Park became available and was acquired by the Development Committee, increasing the size of the original Park to approximately 105 acres.
