The California State Capitol – a photo essay

The California State Capitol kicked off the Explore Sacramento! series last week.  There is a lot of history both in the capitol and on the grounds.  However, Capitol Park offers something for everyone.

After detailing the monuments, history, flowers, and war memorials last week, this week focuses on the beauty of the State Capitol in photos.  So take a look back and enjoy the history and learn more about the California State Capitol or just enjoy the beautiful photos on the grounds throughout Capitol Park.

Whether you explore Sacramento’s history in Old Sacramento or just a walk through the streets of downtown, the California State Capitol building is a beautiful and historic building in the heart of the capital city.

Explore Sacramento! is a series that seeks to discover and explore the sites, sounds, communities, and things to do in Sacramento and northern California.

    This park is one of my favorite places to go in Sacramento. I love to take a long walk there, especially when the rose garden is in full bloom. The variety of trees from around the world is stunning!

    • These photos were actually taken in the spring when everything was in full bloom. I actually spent an hour just walking the grounds of the capitol, taking photos, and just learning about the history and memorials. I have to admit I learned a lot and enjoyed a beautiful day!

  8. looks very luscious and green. i love city parks, was just in melbourne’s this morning. hopefully get up to sacramento sometime soon when i hit california!

    • City parks are very underrated. While national and state parks get a lot of love here in the US, the city parks may be some of the best of any in the country. Central Park in NYC comes to mind.

  9. Looks really pretty, but I am waiting for the Folsom photo essay.
