“Beautiful walk/hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

This park is near our Carmichael home. It's next to the river and includes a popular golf course. There are several paths through woods, meadows, riverbanks, and hills. The perimeter walk is 3 miles. Lots of birds and other woodland creatures to enjoy.

“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

I visited the park with my adult children.. They asked what I would like to do on my birthday. My wish was to have a nice family brunch and spend time in Ancil Hoffman Park after.

The weather was beautiful. We visited the nature center and had a liesurely walk down to the rocks to the water then looked up to see a gorgeous bird at the top of a tree merrily singing down to us. We ventured on to see wild turkeys , deer, squirrels, flowers in bloom, and all the beauty of Nature in the park. All six of us had a most enjoyable day together.

There are many other trails in the park as well as picnic areas and a golf course. It is a very family time place to be.

“A world class GOLF COURSE for Sacramento's Standards”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

I like golf. In the bay area, that means Presideo (now ruined because it was opened up to the Civies and Japanese Tourists have now invaded it) and Indian Valley in Napa (my personal fav) and Lincoln Golf Course. Although it doesn't have the killer holes the Bay Area has---Mistress ANNIE will spank you good if you don't give her the respect she demands!!! You have NO BUSINESS playing ANNIE if you are a beginner---spend some time at the range and then book a round at Land Park

“Nature hikes and Maidu culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Right along the American River, not too far from downtown Sacramento, this is a lovely spot for a hike and an interpretive center visit.
