“Cute, very small, only worth as a stop for locals”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2011

This is not a place to see if you are in NorCal for vacations. It's just a small complex of 20 or so well preserved victorian houses. It's a small oasis inside the city but it's really nothing as a tourist attraction. It can be seen in ten minutes.

“Organized a Meeting in their space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2002

Preservation Park is a beautiful setting for a meeting. There were 45 attendees for our meeting which was held in Nile Hall. The grounds are pretty - it's a Victorian era block of buildings that were moved to the site and arranged just so with nice landscaping and a central fountain. The meeting coordinator at Pres. Park, Barbara, was fabulous to work with, as well.
