“Keep in mind you need to reserve tables on weekends”
Review of McKinley Park

McKinley Park
Ranked #17 of 170 things to do in Sacramento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 22, 2014

There is a lovely duck pond, flowers galore, places to watch tennis lessons, but if you want to picnic, bring your own table or prepare to be kicked off those that have been reserved for giant birthday parties.

Mckinley Park is a great place to run with your family. my wife and i take our 9 month old out there and have a blast. If you use the public bathroom near the swimming pool and basketball court beware! last time i was there i saw a homeless man washing his clothes in the sink. They are usually polite, and just going to through some personal issues. The playground is a lot better and safer now for your little ones. ON the weekends it can get really busy at the basketball court. So if you want to play some hoop, you found a great spot.
just keep your eyes peeled b/c there are an excessive amount of homeless people there. So you might end up running out of fear not just for fitness Purposes.
smile more stress less.

There are play structures here that I have never seen before - one is a variation on the merry-go-round. This is one of the best, if not the best playground I have every seen. Our 3 1/2 year old was running from one thing to the next for over an hour. We then took a walk around the pond that was full of turtles, ducks and geese. Lots of benches in shade and picnic tables. We arrived at 10am and it was very pleasant. At 11am a busload of school age children arrived and changed the atmosphere - they were well behaved, just made it crowded. There is a water fountain by the playground but we didn't see any restrooms. Next door is a library that is closed Sunday & Monday. The public pool opens in June.

This park is fantastic. If I go running, this is where I would like to run. It is exactly a mile around the whole park and there are always people walking, running, or walking their dogs around the park. There are also tennis courts, a pond with ducks, BBQ areas, a playground for kids, and a rose garden. This is a fantastic place to spend a day at the park with a picnic and some games. There are also concerts in the park (Pops in the Park) in the summer that are a lot of fun. Love this place!

It is the coolest park in Sacramento. In November, all the trees lining the street were covered in yellow foliage. Was really pretty.

The rose garden was amazing. We also saw a lot of ducks and geese in the nearby pond.
