A pirate pad awaits in Debs Park

Photo from Above the City

A couple of dried palm fronds, some posts and a flag mark the spot of this open-air shelter somewhere in the hills of Debs Park in Montecito Heights.  How did the  Above the City blogger come across the Robinson Crusoe-like  “Debs Park Pirate Shack”?  It’s not very complicated, says the blogger via email:

“I just walk/bike around the Montecito Heights hills. And if I find a new trail, I just take it … It’s a never ending supply of interesting cool stuff!”


  1. Maybe pirates ship was there when the oceans moved with the dinosaurs? Now only recently discovered. I seen TVs about it before, with Noah and his arch and they found two giraffes heads next to each other, PROOF from the bible! Any elephants running around up there? Then just KEEP WALKING!


    I have been walking around the park for years myself and usually stay on the main paths. This image is very interesting and I will ask other neighbors about it. On another note, I have researched past archives at the local Library and have found that the entire park falls in the community of Rose Hills. I have 2 pictures, actually, that confirm the park is in the community of Rose Hills. I will be sending the digital photos over to……. TheEaseSiderLA to keep in his archives.

  3. I think I know who it might be…. something to do with a giant dragonfly perhaps?
