The area surrounding the capitol is very beautiful. Lots of big trees, plants, and green grass to adore when near the capitol.

Visited with my son and 2 young grandchildren. Beautiful gardens. The firefighter and Viet Nam monuments are thought provoking and beautifully done. The kids enjoyed running around and chasing squirrels! I would love to go back when all the flowers are in bloom.

It's worth a stroll in Capitol Park to see trees representing all the areas of the state, and many monuments that are tucked into vignettes. The rose garden was still in full bloom in November, and the children's poems engraved onto ground markers are lovely.

Bordered by 10th and 15th Sts and L and N Sts, the grounds cover 10 city blocks. Heavily treed example of what Sacramento is about - reputedly the most treed city after Paris. Dozens of well manicured rose gardens for those horticultural lovers. On street...More
