“A Capitol Stroll?”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Lousy parking, traffic around the area but worth a stop. Take a stroll around the park. Enter from the south entrance and take in the old offices, the furniture, historic pictures, the lovely marble and overall architecture. Peek up the rotunda at beautiful artwork. Take the elevator ride to the basement for the cafeteria experience. If its mid-week, you may even catch a public event scheduled usually on the west steps.

“True oasis within town”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

Very nice settings of all kind of vegetation (flowers/cactus/palm trees/orange trees/redwoods/...) and memorials around CA State Capitol with lots of paved trails, benches to relax and birds and squirres to watch. Always good for a stroll and relaxation.

“One of the best parks”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

A nationally recognized rose peace garden; evocative Vietnam and Korea war memorials; a variety of trees maintained and labeled; walkways and benches. It's very special. I work nearby and often eat lunch here.
