Its right of the highway and close to downtown, they offer a kids play area, grill and picnic tables and there's a trail to walk around the lake that offers a fountain. Nice place for a date or to bring the kids.

This is a good place to go walking on a well-used crushed granite path. There are lots of walkers and runners in the evening, and it is safe even after dark. The rose garden is a city treasure. Avoid the coliform-laden duck pond, and please do not feed the animals.

Parking may be difficult...a public tennis court is used and place to sit and have a lunch. Can be warm in the summer....the rose garden is best in spring and fall.

Nice flowers. Great for picnics, jogging and walking. Close by restaurants and a great place to start walking thru the "Fabulous 40's" to look at all the mansions.

There is a lovely duck pond, flowers galore, places to watch tennis lessons, but if you want to picnic, bring your own table or prepare to be kicked off those that have been reserved for giant birthday parties.

If you use the public bathroom near the swimming pool and basketball court beware! last time i was there i saw a homeless man washing his clothes in the sink. They are usually polite,... More

There are play structures here that I have never seen before - one is a variation on the merry-go-round. This is one of the best, if not the best playground I have every seen. Our 3 1/2 year old was running from one thing to the next for over an hour. We then took a walk around the pond that... More

This park is fantastic. If I go running, this is where I would like to run. It is exactly a mile around the whole park and there are always people walking, running, or walking their dogs around the park. There are also tennis courts, a pond with ducks, BBQ areas, a playground for kids, and a rose garden. This is... More

It is the coolest park in Sacramento. In November, all the trees lining the street were covered in yellow foliage. Was really pretty. The rose garden was amazing. We also saw a lot of ducks and geese in the nearby pond.
