People who live in Montecito and Santa Barbara are fortunate to have so much public open space for walking, jogging, and picnicking. A new 14.7 acre parcel was acquired in February of this year by the Parks and Recreation Department and Creeks Division in collaboration with the Trust for Public Land, with the help of several generous grants. The site is located in the Las Positas Valley, along Arroyo Burro, and is the former site of the Veronica Meadows development. The plans for the new, as yet to be named, park include stabilizing and restoring the creek, improving water quality, and protecting wildlife habitat.
