Nice place to relax under the shade or next to one of the two lakes and soak up some of the cool coastal weather. About 153 acres boasts nice size playgrounds for the kids, basketball & volleyball courts and an area for Rover to burn some energy off. Most of the time you'll find a hot dog cart in the parking lot if you aching for a snack.
Orcutt Expressway between Waller Ln and Goodwin Road (just north of Skyway Dr)
Museum of Flight - on the airport property away from the terminal. Did you see 'The Rocketeer'? filmed here, full size mock up of the plane. Fun stuff.
Waller Park, a Santa Barbara County Park. Really big, lots of picnic sites, BBQs, pony rides(weekends), two kiddie playgrounds (both newly redone) a course for a frisbee golf like game (I forget what it's called), two ponds with birds and one with fishing too. Lots and lots of mature trees and lawns.
