El Carro Park is a delight! The mountain panorama is stunning. There is a playground with four large slides and there are swings. Little grassy knolls are fun spots for kids to sit, roll, and run. There is plenty of shade. A huge sports field offers a sea of green beneath the marvelous mountain view.
While in the area, take a walk in Downtown Carpinteria and pop into the surf stores. You can walk from there all the way down to Carpinteria Beach and Tarpits, a great place to explore nature. Another place where nature is alive and well is the Seal Rookery in Carpinteria, where mother seals nurture their babies in a protected cove.
