Reduced County Park Fees for Veterans
Source: County of Santa Barbara
The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors adopted a recommendation to reduce the cost of an annual County parks day-use pass. The annual pass fee for Veterans who served in the United States Armed Forces or Reserves has been reduced to $10 for all Veterans irrespective of residence. Formerly, the annual fee was $50 for Veteran residents of Santa Barbara County and $60 for Veterans residing outside of the county. The annual pass is good for one year from the date of purchase.
The annual pass is accepted at Cachuma Lake Recreation Area and Jalama Beach County Park for day-use entry. The pass can be purchased at both parks, and at County Community Services Department Parks Division, 123 East Anapamu Street, Second Floor, Santa Barbara, 93101. In the near future, passes can also be purchased at Lompoc Veterans Memorial and Santa Barbara Veterans Memorial buildings.
In order to purchase a Veterans annual pass, a customer will need to present one of three eligible identifications:
- California Driver’s License or Identification Card with the Veteran designation issued by the California Department of Motor Vehicles,
- California State Parks Distinguished Veteran Pass issued by the California State Parks, or
- Veterans Identification Card (VIC) issued by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
