The park was filled with homeless sleeping where they could. Otherwise it is interested, with trees from all over California.

An easy walk around the park if you are downtown! Lots of shade, and places to sit, rest, lunch, or just relax. Even as it houses the august State Capitol, this is a park friendly to all.

Full of history as well as activities happening now. Lots of energy and activities happening the day we were there. Kind of made me want to go into politics just... More
