The Chase Palm Park Center

Santa Barbara



The breathtaking scenery and comfortable Mediterranean climate make the City of Santa Barbara an ideal place to celebrate your wedding. The Chase Palm Park Center is a hidden jewel located on the ocean side of Cabrillo Boulevard opposite the antique carousel in Chase Palm Park. The expansive grassy area that separates the building from the sand can be used for a picturesque ocean-side ceremony. Or you may choose to invite guests to witness your exchange of vows amidst the beautiful gently rolling hills of Chase Palm Park’s Great Meadow. You also have the option to pledge your love for one each other under the open-air rotunda of Chase Palm Park’s Pavilion. Hold a classic, alfresco reception using either the Great Meadow or Pavilion locations. Should you want an indoor reception, guests can make their way inside the nearby park Center. A Spanish-style entryway leads into a contemporary main room with carpeting, recessed sconce lighting and marine-themed art. Adjacent to the main dining room is a small sunroom with French doors that open onto an outdoor, semi-circular, concrete patio. The sunroom and patio are ideal locations for a lounge area and cocktail hour. For your reception these spaces can also be utilized for viewing the gorgeous sunset or for dancing under the stars.
