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.

Mckinley Park is a great place to run with your family. my wife and i take our 9 month old out there and have a blast. 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.

Forget the great playground before the vandals torched it! This NEW playground is out of this world. Soft ground under the equipment, really a superb play place! There is a merry-go-round with spinners that I'd have loved to try but I didn't think a grandma should kick off a nine year old :~) There is also a garden, library, duck... More

Great place for family photos. Spot by the rose garden to smell the flowers. You will see lots of people running around the park, join in.

I grew up feeding the ducks and geese at the pond at McKinley Park, enjoying the rose garden in springtime, the Clunie Clubhouse for events, and simply admiring the gracious homes. There is a tangible sense of pride and a deep commitment by the resident's of this area that resonates with me. It is a park that is family friendly,... More
