Naming Opportunities

Name a Bench or Oak

Honor a loved one or show your support for Elings Park by underwriting a bench or oak tree. This lasting gift can not only have personal meaning for you but also improves the park for everyone. Your gift is recognized with a metal plate containing a message of your choice.

Underwriting starts at $25,000 for benches and oaks, depending on location and size. To find out more, contact Marinella Baker at (805) 569-5611 or email


The benches scattered throughout Elings Park are positioned to maximize comfort and views. Locations vary. They nestled under shady trees, adjacent to hiking trails, overlooking sports fields, or situated for that perfect vista of downtown Santa Barbara, local neighborhoods, ocean, islands, waterfront, harbor, beaches, and more.


More than 250 native live coast oak and California island oak trees have been planted in Elings Park over the past two years, and the newly planted oaks along Jerry Harwin Parkway are available for naming. These trees currently range in size from 3 to 6 feet, and they’ll get bigger, much bigger.
