I like to take walks here as there are many paths. Lots of beauriful different trees and cactus area. Several memorials are nice to visit and I always stop by the rose garden.

Capitol Park is located around the State Capitol. Stroll through the park past a host of trees and flowers to visit attractions such as the World Peace Rose Garden, Vietnam Memorial, copy of the Liberty Bell and access to the Capitol.
