Garden St. and E. Cabrillo Blvd.
Santa Barbara, CA
Built in 2000, this long awaited park serves both locals
and tourists. Next to the beach in Chase Palm Park,
the 14,600-square-foot concrete park features ledges, rails, hips, quarterpipes,
banks, a 5-foot + bowl, and pyramid. Admission is free, and pads are required
Directions: Highway 101, north or
southbound, get off at Garden Street and turn toward the ocean. When you
can't go any farther, enter the parking lot. Skater's Point is to your
right, near the wharf.
The design comes from Mike Taylor
at Powell skateboards and different local pros like Sammy Baptista.
It sits on the beach with its own free parking lot.
