University Circle Playground, Goleta

Santa Barbara, California, United States


University Circle Playground is a neighborhood playground with baby swings, regular swings, a bouncy rhinoceros, bridge, stepping circles, toddler slides, and two larger slides in a small recessed area by a creek. There are picnic tables, benches, and tons of trees. This is a dry area that isn't very pretty but it's a pleasant place to spend an hour with your young child. There are no restrooms.
If you're hungry, head south on Patterson Ave to Calle Real where you will find cafes and coffee shops in strip malls along both sides of the road.
From Patterson Ave you can take Highway 217 to Goleta Beach, a popular beach with a pier, white cliffs, and a playground with an ocean view.
