Great place to walk at lunch time. The rose gardens are always beautiful, but my favorite is the gorgeous azaleas. What a great place to walk! The trees provide shade during the warm summer months.

Perhaps in better (warmer) weather and season with blooms, the area would have been more impressive. But we took a nice stroll through the area, and saw the historic veteran's monument (circular structure with bronze statues) on the grounds of the capitol before we felt we were freezing. It would be a nice place to relax and grab a sandwich... More

I haven't been inside but what I can say is that the building is very beautiful by itself and it's very nice walking around the park

This is about the only thing worth visiting in Sacramento. Great park and Capitol building, but it's not necessary to stay for long. Would recommend seeing it if you are in Sacramento.

We are visiting state capitols across the country. This one is worth the trip. Did not do the tour, there is enough to do self guided. Well kept and interesting. The weather was awesome so the walk around outside was pretty.

Walking is a must, but it is well worth the time to see all that is planted for ones enjoyment. The gardeners do an excellent job.

There are trees and plants from all over the world. I believe it's 1 mile around the park for a nice walk or bike ride.
