Tomol Interactive Play Area, Carpinteria

Santa Barbara, California, United States


Tomol Interactive Play Area is a modern playground that borders the Carpinteria beach campground. Here kids can let their imagination free as they hide in Chumash Indian huts, paddle a Chumash canoe, ride seals and whales, and see a bald eagle in a nest (all sculptures). They can run over a bridge with rainbow colors under their feet and then slide down a set of three bumpy slides or even better, a roller slide. This slide is a huge hit with kids!
After playing, walk down to Carpinteria Beach, a popular beach with crashing waves and interesting tar pits. Have a tasty wrap or muffin outdoors under orange umbrellas at Jack's Bistro or browse Curious Cup Bookstore, a children's bookstore, in Carpinteria town. To see real seals in the spring, drive to Carpinteria Seal Rookery.
