Isla Vista Love and Remembrance Garden - The IVLRG at People's Park captures the collective spirit of collaboration that is currently taking shape in Isla Vista. The public art installation, in the form of a botanic landscape, will meander between IV's Peoples and Perfect Parks, dedicating a poetic space for contemplation and celebration in memory of the student lives tragically lost almost a year ago. The effort demonstrates the capacity for the IV and UCSB communities to come together and create a meaningful place for public commemoration and healing. The initial partnership, between project artist and creator, Jordan Killebrew and the Isla Vista Recreation and Park District (IVRPD) has since garnered the support from local business, public historians, librarians, and craftsmen as well as the UCSB Office of Student Life, Associated Students, the Panhellenic community and the faculty and students of the UCSB Departments of Art.

Mural Project - The Isla Vista Mural Project was developed by the Isla Vista Recreation and Park District to enhance the community with art and culture. By encouraging and involving artists of all ages and demographics to participate, the murals will create a common sense of respect and pride to be shared by all residents.

Sueño Orchard - Developed by the Park District in the 80s as a demonstration project, at one time the orchard contained over 30 kinds of trees, mostly fruit bearing, which were cultivated using organic methods and available to the public for consumption. Today, the orchard still contains many varieties, although some no longer produce fruit, and during the spring months, it contains a lush collection of flowers and greenery. The Isla Vista Peace Disc Golf Course begins here, with the first two holes winding around the center orchard area.
