Beautiful Park

Took an evening walk in the park that was well maintained. Saw the roses and monuments in the park. It was good to have a nice park in the downtown area close to the hotel.

This is a beautiful park. There are majestic trees as well as beautiful rose and flower gardens. I strolled through the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, very moving - architecture and amazing statutes very well done. The grass is a little brown in spots due to the drought conditions in California. Other than that, it is a wonderful place to spend a... More

Beautiful scenery. Trees and shrubs are stunning. The state Capitol building is spectacular. The tours are great. Great location for a long walk or jog.

This park was amazingly impressive. The grounds are so beautiful and well kept. It was educational as well! I appreciated all of the placards on the different species of trees and plants. You must walk through the park during a visit!

We love to walk in Capitol Park, with its rose garden, memorial, and trees of many species (labeled). The Capitol building itself provides a great tour.

We stayed in a nearby hotel, and found that others were recommending this park. The walk wasn't far, and yet the park has a welcoming yet regal feel, suitable to the beautiful building that is the state capital. Trees have been carefully maintained and trimmed, and the whole space feels both public and beautiful.

Not only is the mall / park nicely maintained, there is several war memorials along the paths to honor various veteran's of several wars. Once done outside, the Capital building itself if rich with history, including vignettes from every county in the State. If you love Architecture, its also a great spot for seeing or photographing classic architecture of the... More

It's fun strolling on the paths, looking at the many flowers and trees - you might even see a legislator.....

You'll see the gamut of folks here at noon, M-F. Pretty fascinating just to watch and wonder where they are all from and what they are all doing!

This park has it all, everything is well maintained and fully green. You will catch people exercising or riding their bikes along the paths, and if you go on a good date you may run into a concert. Be sure to stop at the State Capitol as well!
