The Carpinteria Lions Park consists of two separate areas, the lodge and the picnic area.
The park offers an expansive lawn with a log cabin style lodge on one side and a picnic area on the other. The sizable lawn is surrounded by tall trees and a charming gazebo. It provides many options for designing an event with your own personal style. You can have a ceremony at the steps of the lodge or gazebo, have hors d’oeuvres and cocktails on the lawn before heading inside for a reception, or dine and dance under the stars. The park offers versatility and natural beauty that sets us apart from other venues. This is a stunning location that offers the perfect romantic setting for an outdoor wedding ceremony. Indoor events will accommodate up to 160 guests and outdoor events will accommodate up to 200 guests.
BBQ & PIcnic Area
Opposite the Lodge, across the lawn is our spacious outdoor barbeque area. It comes complete with: a full kitchen, huge barbeque pit, built in picnic tables, restrooms, large children’s play structure and horseshoe pits. It provides a charming setting for company picnics, birthday parties, reunions and rehearsal dinners. For additional fees we will provide the bar and bartender, volleyball net and uniformed security. The barbecue area will accommodate up to 200 guests.
Built in 2008, our full bar has enhanced the beauty and charm of the cedar lodge. Its high ceiling and tall windows frame the view of the park attractively.We offer a large assortment of beer, wine and liquor. California Alcohol Beverage Control regulations require all alcohol be served from the Lions Club bar.
Our comprehensive commercial kitchen is a favorite among caterers.
It includes 2 ovens, a grill, refrigerator, freezer, mixer, dishwasher and ample counter space. It is adjacent to the main room for convenient service. You may use your own caterer or hire the Carpinteria Lions Club to cater a delicious tri-tip barbecue along with all the side dishes.
