This play structure is actually called "Kid's World".
Alameda Park, located on 1400 Santa Barbara Street is home to Kids’ World; an 8000 sq ft of playground consisting of slides, tons of things to climb or balance on, sculptures, and a castle. There are plenty of picnic tables, grassy fields, trees, and parking on the streets.
It’s close to downtown and Alice Keck Park.
Be sure to check out the paintings and other art forms on the wooden play structure. My kids enjoyed seeing the recycled art section where there was an old phone stuck into the cement. There is some beautiful art depicting scenes unique to Santa Barbara.
I learned to keep a careful eye on my children as it is easy to loose site of them amongst the tunnels and walls of this wooden play structure. But it is a very fun place to play!
These are wonderful parks across the street from each other for kids and adults. Alameda Park has a large wooden play structure with swings, climbing ropes, slides. The statue whales are always a favorite for my 4 and 7 year olds to climb on. There are picnic tables. It has lots of grass for the kids to run around on outside the semi-enclosed area. The area is close to the street so careful with the real little ones.
Walk across the street to Alice Keck Park. Go check out the turtles and beautiful setting. Get sandwiches from Cantwell's Market 1533 State St and have a great afternoon at the park!
Designed by city children and built by them, as well as community volunteers, this two-story wooden playland is truly a kid’s dream come to life. A tot lot and sandbox are available for the very young, while older sibs can cruise through tunnels and stride over bridges or clamber up the tree house.
