Beautiful Park

We walked around after visiting the State Capitol and I was very impressed with all the memorials for the veterans and the beautiful rose gardens. The park is big and well kept.

As you can see by the pictures posted by others, Capital Park has a variety of things to enjoy. On one side of the Capital Building is where people take pictures of the building, on the other side is the park. The park has a memorial for veterans, a rose garden, there is also a very large historical bell. The... More

Beautiful grounds. Fun to walk around outside. We were there on a Saturday morning, it was so quiet Nd beautiful. Very clean and well kept. Some of the greenery was brown as it should be in this horrible drought we are experiencing. There is a population of homeless present when walking in the area.

40 acres of relaxation in downtown Sacramento! To me, since Sacto can get warm, are the Huge trees and all the wonderful shade they give. I like the Orange trees because they remind me of my home county, but be sure to visit the 'moon tree' grown from a seed that had been to the moon and back. Seems like... More

This gem is right in front of the Capitol and is full of beautiful trees, monuments and a rose garden. It's a nice place for walking dogs or eating lunch on a park bench. There's plenty of history to take in as well. It's worth the time.

We loved being able to smell all the roses in the rose garden, walk under the orange trees, and see the turtles in the little pond. It was educational too as they have plaques and statues with influential people in California history.

I assume this means the grounds on the outside. We got a map inside the building for the outside. It has a wide variety of trees and the grounds are pretty large. I found the inside of the building to be more interesting than the outside, but it's worth stopping on the outside and taking a picture if you are... More

The park has many different kinds of trees that are labeled. There's also a monument to veterans. You can watch some neat birds and the squirrels.
