About two miles north of Mission Santa Barbara, within the grounds of the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens, are the remains of the Mission Dam, filter, and aqueduct.

Santa Barbara Botanic Garden: (where the mission dam is located)
1212 Mission Canyon Road
Santa Barbara, CA

To get to Santa Barbara Botanic Garden to see the dam, exit the mission parking lot and turn left onto Los Olivos and follow it counter-clockwise around the front of the mission. Follow Los Olivos through it curves and a name change to Mission Canyon Road and follow to Foothill Road. Turn right and then after a few blocks, turn left back onto Mission Canyon Road. Follow to the Gardens. Be carefull and watch the signs, it gets confusing. We got lost returning once.
