HOW IT ALL STARTED
In Isla Vista, CA -- the uniquely strange beach town adjacent to the University of California at Santa Barbara campus -- something was born that can never die and will always be welcome to the wicked, the wily, the weary, and the ones who wander in the dark...Mookpark. This was the Sophomore home of the founder and his roommates at UCSB. The home of the 'mookbats' who lit bonfires and made raucous raves that burned in the hearts of everyone nearby. This place, this Mookpark, is the encapsulation of everything possible and everything impossible that we could ever dream. The home of the dreamers that houses us all. Once you visit Mookpark, you will never be without it.
