The Story So Far
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 the 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. The Phase I construction of the Tennis Court Complex on Las Positas Road in 1972—now a City facility—was only the beginning. In 1980, after identifying the community’s additional athletic needs, the Elings Park Foundation, in Phase II, developed and built two soccer fields and three lighted softball fields. And recognizing that the park’s outstanding vistas have made it a cherished place to gather, to celebrate, and to commemorate, the Foundation developed facilities and venues for weddings, birthdays, and memorial services. The Dream has not yet ended. Phase III promises a park of the future, as the Elings Park Foundation continues its tradition of civic environmentalism—to fulfill our community’s broadest recreational needs for generations to come.

The Dream


Park Overview

A Community Project
Listening to the ideas of area residents has been a hallmark of Elings Park since the beginning, a practice that continues with planning and implementation of Phase III. The suggestions of the community were combined with input from the park’s volunteer board, City Parks and Recreation staff, park visitors and neighbors. Students from local high schools were invited to roundtable meetings to ensure that their needs and wishes also were considered. Underlining the awareness that no tax dollars go to support the park, the community has contributed tangibly as well, with financial donations small and large from individuals, families, foundations and corporations.

Who is Virgil Elings?

A former UCSB science professor and co-founder of Digital Instruments, local philanthropist Virgil Elings, donated $1.5 million to sustain the park in 1999. He said his attachment to the place dated back to the 1970’s, when he flew model planes there with his son Jeff.

Something for Everyone
Elings Park has been a vital part of Santa Barbara’s recreational life since its inception, offering organized activities for athletes of every age. Young people participate in summer day camps, baseball tournaments and soccer clubs. Adults enjoy softball and baseball leagues, soccer and rugby games, and ultimate Frisbee, as well as mountain biking, and hang gliding and paragliding. Entire families (including those with dogs) use the hiking trails, playgrounds, and picnic and barbecue areas, and there are tracks for BMX racers and radio-controlled car aficionados. Spectacular wedding venues ensure that the park also has a cherished place in many family memories.

On Special Occasions
Throughout the year, special events introduce the park to the community at large, including a Great Egg Hunt in the spring. Attracting anywhere from 200 to as many as 1,000 people are a Beer Festival, a Bike Festival, corporate picnics, weddings, memorials, graduations and fundraising activities.

Phase III Community Solutions
In addition to planning for the future, we are also looking at ways to improve our park today. Phase III addresses many important issues, including: Landscaping Since the majority of our land was bulldozed over the years, we are working to re-landscape with trees, bushes, grasses, and flowers. Each new recreation area will be surrounded with lush vegetation that is drought-resistant and shade promoting. We will also continue to irrigate with reclaimed water Accessibility We have worked with an accessibility consultant to make access to the park more friendly to all. We are improving grading, bus stop accommodations for wheelchair use, additional crosswalks on Jerry Harwin Parkway, accessible paths, handicap parking, trail signage and viewing areas.

Lighting Since some lighting features at the park are more than 20 years old, we recognize the need to harness the progress of science. Our new facilities will include state-of-the art lighting that will focus needed light down onto playing fields, while greatly reducing the amount of excess light created. As is currently our practice, lighted events will end at 10 p.m. Noise / Traffic We value our central location as an asset for the community, but we also understand that noise and traffic can be issues. We have stringent policies that comply with City standards regarding noise levels. We require mandatory noise monitors at every event, and all events with amplified sound are required to end by 10 p.m. Traffic conflicts have also been minimized due to careful planning.

Creating Financial Stability
As a non-profit, self-funding entity, Elings Park receives no City, State, or Federal tax dollars. In the past, revenue has come from grants, individual and foundation contributions, corporate donations, field and venue rentals, and revenue from various fees. Improvements to the facilities – especially the arena soccer field – are expected to generate additional revenue, but Phase III fundraising is crucial to the creation of a self-sustaining park.

Just the Facts
Established in 1980, Elings Park is now a 230-acre recreational complex that serves more than 219,000 people each year. It has a 501(c)(3) non-profit status.

Solace for the Soul

The Veterans Memorial Walk is a 1,500-foot tree-lined landscaped walkway with 10 marble and sandstone markers engraved with a year and the names of area soldiers who died in Vietnam. On the Terrace of Remembrance the local servicemen and women who gave their lives in other wars are displayed on a stainless steel globe.

Volunteers & Contributors

Elings Park Needs You!
Elings Park has always depended on the commitment of volunteers and contributors. A handful of locals first recognized the possibilities of the site for community recreation. Over the years, their vision became a reality, inspiring hundreds of adults and children alike to take part in activities here. More than 5,000 people actually helped build the Veterans Memorial Walk and Terrace of Remembrance. Along with the many volunteers, it is generous public financial donations that have allowed the park to prosper. Extensive use of the facilities and enjoyment of park events ensure that Elings Park remains an essential part of the community, but none of that would be possible without your continued generous support.

We ask for your support and participation.
