Manning Park

Manning Park is a peaceful, beautiful place. The former estate was donated to Santa Barbara County and now provides recreation opportunities for the community. Upper Manning Park facilities include a variety of picnic areas, ball field, tennis courts, and a renovated, historic carriage house, which is available for use by non-profit community youth groups (reservable in advance, free of charge). The lower park includes a playground, picnic facilities and large lawn area. 

Directions
From Highway 101, exit at San Ysidro Rd. Head towards the mountains. Upper Manning Park is located on the left just past Santa Rosa Road and Montecito Union School.  Lower Manning Park is accessed by turning right onto Santa Rosa Road from San Ysidro Road.  The entrance is on the left immediately after turning off of San Ysidro.
