We had a tree planted here in memory of our mother. It is fun to visit and watch the growth of the tree (a beautiful magnolia). Beautiful peace rose garden. Lots of memorials and huge trees. Wonderful place really.

It seems as if every county could plant some plants in this lush garden, so you meet everything from redwood to orange trees

its large and carved out of the urban center of town, but its trees given wonderful shade for picnics; a nap on a warm afternoon; or a brisk stroll at dawn. Running is a bit more of a challenge, but it can still be done safely and easy to avoid other pedestrians.

Wonderful history and incredible variety of trees. We ate oranges straight from the trees that line the sidewalks. Bring quarters for the meters, and don't miss out on the Civil War Union Veterans Memorial Grove.

This is a must visit. Filled with great history, trees, flowers and scenic views. Take the time to visit the Capitol, it is rich in history and you will not be didappointed. This is a must visit - you will love it!

Although we were there on a chilly, foggy day, we took the walk down the mall and enjoyed the statues, plantings, and most especially the Vietnam Memorial. Definitely worth the time.

Capitol Park offers something for everything. There is history - a tree from the moon, veterans memorials, squirrels, trees, benches, rose garden. Its a huge park, with lots to see. In the warmer months, probably best, but beautiful year round.

The park around the California Capitol in Sacramento is very pretty with different botanical areas. One of our favorite times to go is during Christmas when the Christmas tree is up and nicely decorated. We parked at a a parking garage nearby ($1.50 for 40 minutes time which is more th an enough time to park, and walk, and go... More

Left the hotel, try walk laps! Saw some white tents! I know any state that the town has Capitol Building, there usually something happening!
