Mission Historical Park is a 10-acre park (4.0 ha) located to the east of the Santa Barbara Mission in Santa Barbara, California. The park hosts a large open grassy area, the A.C. Postel Memorial Rose Garden, a fountain, hiking trails, a variety of sycamore and native oak trees, a historic olive grove dedicated to World War I veterans, remains of tannery vats, a pottery, gristmill, and a historic reservoir and aqueduct system. The park and the Mission were designated as a California State Historical Landmark on July 12, 1939 (No. 309).
The park is divided by Alameda Padré Serra, a major access roadway that has an Average Annual Daily Traffic (AADT) of about 9,900 vehicles. The perimeter of the park's 8-acre southern area extends from the intersection of East Los Olivos St. and Laguna St. north to Alameda Padré Serra, and east to Plaza del Rubio. The smaller northern 2-acre portion occupies the area between Alameda Padré Serra, and Mountain Drive and Mission Ridge Road at the park's northern terminus.

Great place to visit! Rich in history and really interesting. If you visit, get there early and take the guided tour, there's so much to learn and so many details that you would miss if you tour it by yourself. Me and my family enjoyed it a lot, and after the visit we went to Presidio and ended the day walking through Downtown Santa Barbara.

Very neat to see such an old and unique building that is still standing and in use today. The tour was very informative and the tour guide is very fun and passionate about the mission.

neat place. I was scared because of the dark sky, but everything turned out. The smoke overtook the sky because of the burning forests and it bit up the trip. the types of terrain are amazing. All liked it

I’m so happy to be back in Santa Barbara. I recently went to this place with what seem like a new set of eyes. This place is beautiful! The gardens and the families bring life to this old city of mine. I’ll be spending a lot of time here while I continue to grow. I hope through all the fires and disasters we’ve experienced and continue to experience that this place will always remain

One of my favorite places to visit in Santa Barbara! I've been here several times and it's lovely each and every time. On my last visit, I actually went to Sunday Mass. Although I'm not Catholic, I found it very enjoyable, and very beautiful to be worshiping God in such a historic place. I think everyone should visit here at least once. Truly a blessed place!

The Old Mission is a must for anyone visiting the Santa Barbara area. My wife and I were here on our anniversary vacation and it was spectacular. Our tour guide Nancy was very knowledgeable and kind with us. We even got to see a part of the tour few get to see because I use a wheelchair!

Beautiful mission and gardens! Loved the many artifacts, art, preserved rooms, cemetery, and museum. Our family enjoyed our self tour (was $9 adults and $4 kids up to age 17) at a fairly quick pace, in about an hour. Highly recommend visiting this mission and you'll fall in love with the town as well! Also recommend visiting the nearby wharf- great food and gorgeous pier!

The outside is beautiful. We had to paid to see the Old Mission. We spent about 30 minutes to see the inside. The inside is basic. The garden is excellent.
