I was involved with the Vietnam Memorial many years ago and wanted it to remain maintained, as well as taken care of on a regular basis. The park looks good and it is a nice place to walk around.

There is parking around most of the edge of this park. The "Fallen Buddy" memorial is a must see for anyone who has a relative in the military. (made by ship builders at Bath Iron Works) The Rail Trail between Augusta & Gardiner is only a few steps away. And views of the capitol buildings just across the street. Lots... More

A hidden treasure in the midst of Augusta. A wonderful place to walk or have a picnic or walk your dog or just relax during lunch or your break.

This park is a lovely place to come for a picnic, a walk, a jog, a game of whiffleball or to lie on the grass and read a book. There are old shade trees and gravel paths and a Viet Nam Memorial. It sits under the imposing State Capital building up on the hill.

Capitol Park, as it's name suggests in located across from the state Capitol building. It's a wonderful location to have a picnic and there are walking paths all around it to stretch your legs. It's also near the Maine State Museum and the Kennebec River Rail Trail.

I lived on Center Street about a 1 to 2 minute walk away. I always played there as a kid. Alot of people seemed to use it back in the day, but no one really knows it is there. Much is unchanged since my childhood days. They have added a few nice benches and a couple graveled paths, but not... More

Lots of space to play ball with the family, have a picnic or a family party. Well maintained, easily accessible. Right across from the YMCA and the police station.

Regular visitor as I'm often in the area. Would like to see more welcoming paths and directions to out-of-town folks and more flowers, especially visible from Capitol and State Streets.
