Escondido Park, Santa Barbara California

Description

Escondido Park is just a small neighborhood park but it's unusually pretty. Eucalyptus trees tower to the sky and the well-kept basketball court has the greenest, loveliest setting I've ever seen for basketball! There are delightful views of mountains and valley. A short trail takes you around the park. The playground and swings are designed for babies and toddlers.
Escondido Park is in the area of Santa Barbara called The Mesa. A good place to buy a picnic is the amazing deli at upscale Lazy Acres Market. Afterwards go for a walk from La Mesa Park to the Mesa Lane Steps.

This is a good place for Moms of young children to meet, I meet my PEP group here once a week. It's a contained area, makes it easy to talk while your kids play, the structure is the right size for little ones!
