Enjoyed looking at all the trees. The trees are marked making them easy to identify. We enjoyed a leisure walk among the paved and shaded trail/path. Also there are many art works and statues scattered throughout the park. No biking or skating/boarding allowed.

The trail is not a hike but rather a walk. Old Sacramento has lots of eating establishments and stores. It offers views of the river and the Tower Bridge. There is a statue of a horseman with a plaque that tells a brief story of the Pony Express. It's a neat area.

beautiful city park, lots of trees for shade. I enjoyed myself quite a bit. my only complaint is that walking next to the road you run into a fair amount of traffic noise and distraction.

This was a nice trail, but some guy on a bike started following my friend and I halfway through our walk making it really uncomfortable. Needless to say we cut our walk short and probably won't go back again.
