“A lovely park with a state capitol in the middle”

My favorite park in Sacramento with a variety of trees and monuments. You'll find the names of the trees listed and the monuments are very educational.

“Nice Place Walk Laps”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

Per suggestion of one the many doctors I see, and per recommendation my friends at Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel one stay one Jazz Jubilee, I since maybe 2010 been walk the laps around this Capitol Park, as long as no protestors in area! One regular walker with her brown dog says all four corners is one mile, so I guess I been doing eight or doing nine miles! I usually walk eight laps, sometimes nine! Started slow, had injury 2005!

Mostly on Saturdays, occasionally Mondays to Fridays! Mostly Saturday mornings! One Saturday the lady says something of "Picking Up Your Pace," I ask what that means! She says, "When you seeing the doctor again," at time I said, "Saw one last Thursday, seeing another one two days from now," that would be Monday! She told me tell them I improving!

Every once in awhile there Fund Raising Walks, such Heart Walk, around Capitol Building! I participate in some of them, such Heart Walk!

When last stayed at Sheraton, I did almost every day! Saturday, day after birthday, no way, I remember there be protestors! I find something else do that day!

“Trees!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Peaceful area to walk around and see all the different trees of California. Rose garden and memorials are good. I'd combine with a visit with the State Capitol and Museum.
