Something New at the Andrée Clark Bird Refuge
New Adult Outdoor Exercise Equipment Area Offers Unique Exercise Experience
The Andrée Clark Bird Refuge is home to something new—the City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department has installed an adult exercise equipment area.
The new exercise equipment was installed by the City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department in early September 2016, and is known as the “Stretch Station.”
The Stretch Station is located on Los Patos Way next to the parking lot and bike path. The Stretch Station features three pieces of equipment, to be used for gentle stretching and exercise, and the exercise area’s location provides a convenient meeting place for exercise groups. The equipment has proved popular with the public, seeing consistent use and prompting positive feedback from users.
Designed for walkers, runners, cyclists, or anyone wanting to take a stretch-break at a scenic outdoor location, the Stretch Station is open to the public during park opening hours (sunrise to 10:00 p.m.).
The Stretch Station was funded by the City of Santa Barbara, the Parks and Recreation Community (PARC) Foundation, and Bill and Lorraine McIntosh.
