Lions Park Carpinteria

Nestled in a rural area on two acres at the base of the Carpinteria foothills, Lions Park has become one of the most appreciated and utilized community facilities in the area. The park and its facilities are widely used by individuals and families, as well as for community and charitable events.

Lions Park is located in the beautiful Carpinteria Valley, an oceanside community 80 miles up the coast from Los Angeles and 12 miles south of Santa Barbara. Visitors come to this peaceful seaside community to soak up sunshine at the beach, or to simply enjoy the pleasures of small town living.

A Brief History

Lions Park Carpinteria Map

In 1962 a parcel of land belonging to the Carpinteria Unified School District and declared surplus was purchased by the Carpinteria Lions Club (CLC) for a community park. Tables, benches, a barbeque pit, lights, and sanitary facilities were installed as the first phase of the plan for the park. CLC members volunteered labor and equipment. Later a large play area was constructed, including special play ground equipment suitable for children of pre-school age. Buildings that existed on the land were remodeled, repainted and additional equipment provided for both Boys and Girls Scout Troops who used them. Later, smaller, more intimate picnic sites were added for individual family use. The park became the most appreciated and utilized recreational area in the community, second only to the state beach park. The property become known as Lions Park, an open space and natural recreational area for the public’s use.

Since its construction, the lodge has been used by the public, governmental agencies and nonprofit organizations for many purposes, including, meetings, educational seminars, weddings, religious services, nonprofit activities, and emergency relief and shelter. The lodge is a perfect complement to the outdoor recreational setting at Lions Park.

The members of CLC give, without charge, their time, talent, energy and devotion to the park and the lodge for the benefit of the public.
