We were going to the library downtown and walked through this park. It has taken a turn for the worse since the 90's. It is now campground to the homeless; bodies of transient are strewn on benches and under trees. The stench if urin is...More

Visiting Sacramento for three days, my wife and I took the opportunity to go downtown on a hot day. Unlike other cities where you have to avoid fellow pedestrians on the sidewalk there was hardly anyone about. Walking through several blocks the smell of Urine...More

The only time I venture into this park is Wednesday's during the farmers market. All other times it is over run by vagrants. The park is dirty & could be a nice place to eat lunch if it wasn't the hangout for the seedier side...More

Used to go concerts in the park there in the 90's but now it is filthy, rundown, and the homeless gather here. City of Sacramento let this park go down the toilet. It smells like a toilet. Stay away

We stayed at the Citizen, and I was reminded of my fortune looking out our big windows at the homeless folks there. Nice green space in the middle of concrete. We were recently in San Antonio where Chavez's legacy is great celebrated.

Adjoining city hall, a monument to Chavez and California's migrant workers does the city and state proud, a shady wonderland of beautiful plantings and walkways welcoming to all, including homeless people and backpackers

I walked through the park as they were getting it ready for the busy season of concerts, events and more that is offered here. The Chavez Memorial is a wonderful tribute to a saint whose life and mission benefited so many across the US.
