Old Town Goleta is getting a new park with courts for numerous sports and amenities for all ages.

The City of Goleta held a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday at the corner of Hollister and Kellogg avenues in Old Town.

"I am thrilled we are beginning construction on this new park which will provide unique recreation opportunities, particularly for the Old Town community," said Mayor Paula Perotte.

The city bought the four-acre site on the corner with the intention of putting in a park, which was designed through community meetings to include a multi-purpose field, basketball court, handball court, concrete ping-pong table, bocce ball court, pickleball court, perimeter walking path, fitness nodes with exercise equipment, picnic areas, skateboard plaza. Down the line, during Phase Two of construction, a splash pad will be added.
