I drive past Land Park frequently. It is a nice area of Sacramento and IX an area that is family friendly with picnic tables in the Park,ca golf course, pony rides, and smaller amusement rides. The Zoo is within walking distance as is Fairytale Town. A WPA garden is in the vicinity with flowers, bushes, succulents, and shrubs for every... More

I took 4 grandsons on an outing to this delightful, little zoo on a cool day in October! What a pleasure! The boys ranged in age from 18 months to 15 years. There were enough attractions to keep everyone happy! All of the attractions were stroller friendly, and even allowed my little guy to view the animals from his seat!... More

Well, I'm partial since I live a block away. I enjoy every morning walking around our beautiful park. So lucky to have it right here. And the kids love the zoo and Fairytale Town. Visitors to Sacramento will enjoy this venue

Land Park is a great example of a philanthropic period of U.S. history. I can't imagine what this area would be like without this lovely parcel of stately trees, ponds, and lawn. The City and volunteer groups have managed to keep this vast paradise clean, green, and pristine. It's a park for everyone: golfers, kids (zoo, ponds, ponies, Fairytale Town),... More

Been here many times. It's a popular park for walking, jogging, etc with baseball fields, and various fitness stations (monkey bars for pull ups etc) scattered throughout the park. There is a kid playground that is gated and a restroom nearby. Shady and nice for gatherings. They have fixed up the 2 ponds and the area near the zoo so... More

With my daughter moving to Sacramento and living across from the park, I took a leisurely early morning stroll through Land Park. The park is full of joggers and walkers though the morning and evening rush on Sutterville Road headed towards Interstate 5 does introduce an urban flavor. The park itself is very extensive and managed to stay green through... More

This really is a huge park with ponds (not worthy of fishing in for us), picnic areas, golf course, fairy tale land, zoo and small amusement park. Big plus is parking is free which we found to be rare in California. Nice way to spend a couple of hours with the kids.

The park covers an area of at least a square mile and walking through the park you can almost forget that you are in an urban setting. There are at least two lakes, a municipal golf course, walking trails and numerous picnic facilities as well as a small performance center. We missed it but there is also Shakespeare in the... More

Thanks to the generosity and foresight of William Land, who donated the cash along with the requirements that a public space be created for the use of all people, we have a local treasure in the form of "Land Park." It's big - more than 200 acres, about five times the size of McKinley Park. All that open space allows... More

I am somewhat biased towards this wonderful park as I only live 2 blocks away. My children have gone to Zoo Camp at the Sacramento Zoo, spent many a summer at the rides and at Fairytale Town and played Little League. Concerts are held at various places in the park and there is nothing nicer that a picnic while watching... More
