We visited East Portal Park in Sacramento. its a very nice park with trees, picnic areas, and sports fields. There is a very good bocce ball club area. In 2004, the team at this park won the national championship.

East Portal Park is a four-square-block park located in central Sacramento. It's been a favorite of the local community for more than 60 years since its early years as, yup, a gravel pit (that's why it's so low in the middle).

If you're a visitor to Sacramento in June, there is a Pops In The Park family concert series that is held on Saturday evenings during June at four local community parks, including East Portal. The free concerts offer a wonderful local experience if you're in the area during that time.

East Portal Park also the home of the East Sacramento Bocce Club, one of the nation's most highly respected bocce organizations, founded by none other than Al Capone (historical accuracy of this statement is highly suspect). But seriously, the club has been a symbol of our local Little Italy since the 70's and hopefully for generations to come.

So if you're nearby during the Pops In The Park concert series, catch one of these free family-friendly events. You'll have an evening of fun, hanging out with friends, or even making a new friend.

Get over here!
