Elings Park is an outdoor wedding venue located in Santa Barbara, California. This property was founded in 1965 as a superb setting for recreational facilities, open to all citizens of the Santa Barbara area. Created on a spot between Goleta and Carpinteria, this place hosts weddings and other special occasions, as well as a variety of sports and athletics events.

Facilities and Capacity

Elings Park features two scenic and peaceful event spaces to host wedding celebrations. Both Godric Grove and Singleton Pavilion have stunning sunsets, mountain views, and the ocean within sight. Godric Grove is a large and estate-like area overlooking the rest of the park, with amazing views of the mountains and city, as well as a glimpse of the ocean. A stone amphitheater makes a marvelous setting for an outdoor wedding, with an adjacent shaded wood deck and lush grass, gardens, and Liquidamber trees. In the Spring and Summer, gorgeous Matilija poppies bloom, adding even more beauty to this space. A sizeable serving area, room for a canopy, and a private parking lot make planning more convenient. Alternatively, Singleton Pavilion is a large and scenic grass area. A welcoming gazebo stands on a flagstone patio with a tree-dotted stone terrace and a built-in bench. Both of these event spaces can host events for up to 200 people.

Services Offered

Elings Park can be booked as a wedding venue through Events by Rincon, whether in-person, by phone, or by email. A couple can makes plans to wed, dine, and dance at this superb outdoor locale.

We chose Godric Grove at Elings Park after visiting seven or eight popular Santa Barbara/Montecito wedding venues and it was by far our favorite venue. Elings is such a naturally beautiful park. It is really set up for events and if you’re imagining an outdoor wedding – this is the place for you. For one thing, Santa Barbra generally has phenomenal weather, which Elings really allows you to take advantage of, and for another Elings has the best views of Santa Barbara’s natural beauty that you could ever imagine. On one side you have the ocean and the city and on the other the mountains. In all the venues we visited we did not find a single other one that so classically captured what makes Santa Barbara such an idyllic place to get married. Working with the Elings staff was also very simple. You pay the balance in full to secure your wedding day and then you’re largely done. There is an amphitheater that many couples use for their ceremony and the actual grove is great for cocktail hour, while we used the deck for dinner. It’s really a great venue that maximizes space and allows you to have your guests flow around while staying centralized. The park also has great restroom facilities which means you don’t have to deal with porta-potties like some outdoor venues. One of the great things about Elings is that you also get the venue for the whole day once you rent it so you really can get your money’s worth by having your whole wedding at this one beautiful location. Overall I would say having an outdoor wedding here was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding, it really made the day.

Godric Grove was the perfect setting for both our ceremony and reception. With ocean views on both sides of the park and plenty of room for guests, it provided an incredible response from all of our guests. The gorgeous trees created the perfect backdrop for everything.
