Beautiful city park. Your kids will love the huge play structure. Bring a picnic and eat in the park. It is cool and shady, Places for kids to run off steam. It is off the beaten track for most tourists, but not far from the center of town.

Parents should stay close to kids at this park. Many places in the structures for kids to to hide, and many homeless wandering about - some gentle but some angry and cursing. Great place under close supervision.

There always some homeless camped out here but they are not... More

Took my son to the twice during our 4 night stay in Santa Barbara. He loved it especially the giant play set (aka Kid's World). The play set reminds me of Winchester Mystery House in San Jose because there are steps that lead to nowhere and everything is kind of narrow. The park itself is divided into 3 areas separated...

We saw this park from the trolley tour, and our kids asked for a visit. We got our trolley tour guide to let us off near-by and walked back. Great park for the kids to burn off some steam. There were some local ladies selling peeled mangos, and a wedding using another part of the park. Also seemed very popular... More

We took our toddler here and be loved it! There's so much to do for all ages and the structure is very well designed. There is also a lot of grass space and it's not crowded.

The play equipment here is so much fun for the kids. There is plenty of seating for tired parents and on weekends or other peak times there are usually some vendors with push carts selling ice cream, chips, and mango-on-a-stick. If you have to use the public restroom, it's not a problem, but it's not great either. Be aware you... More

We have taken our kids and now our grandkids to this park called Kids World for years. It is a great playground to let them have fun and wear themselves out.

Want those little ones to work off some steam. Take them here. Kids World at Alameda Park. This is a giant playset. My 9 year old grand daughter called it a giant maze of this to do.
