Coffee, Conversation, and Community Engagement

The City of Goleta is hosting a fantastic program starting at 9 a.m. with Coffee & Community, featuring Mayor Pro Tempore Luz Reyes-Martín from District 1. Afterward, stick around for the Beautify Goleta event beginning at 10:00 a.m.

There are two entrances to the park—one on Berkeley Road and another on Arundel Road. Spanish translation will be available.

Start your day with a warm cup of coffee and a delicious pastry while mingling with fellow Goleta residents. This is a wonderful chance to learn about neighborhood news, ask questions, and build connections. You can enjoy the Coffee & Community session until it wraps up or join our dedicated team of volunteers at 10:00am for Beautify Goleta and help clean up the park and surrounding areas. It’s a great event for the whole family, with activities like sidewalk chalk painting, a playground, and fun in the grassy field to keep the kids entertained.
