Monte Vista Park is a neighborhood park with a large playground and some shady spots to sit. The playground has a twisty slide, a tunnel slide, a toddler playground, and swings. Bring a jacket in winter because there is a cold wind coming off the ocean. A wonderful place to go near here is the Seal Rookery just down Bailard Avenue- what a gorgeous walk- don't miss it!
Other nice places to hang out in Carpinteria are: El Carro Park, with its playground with many slides and its mountain views; Carpinteria Beach and Tar Pits, a beach with roaring waves and fascinating tarpits; Downtown Carpinteria, a laidback beach town with surf shops; and Santa Claus Lane Beach, one of the most pristine beaches in the Santa Barbara area.
