Sparkie can dream of high adventures on a ship in this park in the northwestern part of Santa Maria. The ship sits next to a pond and creek, which currently are dry.

The nearly 40-acre park, the largest in the city, has two modern playgrounds, barbecue picnic areas, an 18-hole disc golf course, a gazebo, piñata poles, lots of trees and open space for recreation.

A special area is designated as Hudson’s Grove, named for Bailey Hudson whose love of trees resulted in the planting of thousands of trees in the city and earning the city the title of Tree City USA.
