Although not officially part of Carpinteria, this is a very nice park with a wonderful view of ocean, islands and mountain.  

There is direct access to a gorgeous beach, as well as a children's playground, grills, picnic tables, restroom facilities, and abundant parking.  The picnic facilities have privacy from one another, meaning that there aren't as many as there could be so get there early if you are planning an event.

If you are staying in Carpinteria, it is an easy drive up the coast.  Summerland is just on the other side of the freeway in case you forgot something or wanted to grab a burger.



Directions:  From the 101 take the Summerland exit.  Turn towards the ocean and voila, you're there.
