Check Out the WPA Rock Garden at William Land Park in Sacramento (Part I)

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

One of the things that I like best about living in the Sacramento neighborhood of Land Park is the fact I can walk along our tree-canopied streets to just about anywhere. I walk not only to typical places such as restaurants, gift shops, boutiques, the Land Park Tower Theatre or Taylor's Market, but we have our very own William Land Park, which boasts over 11 acres of gently rolling grassy hills and a golf course, jogging trails, ponds, baseball field, an abundance of trees, picnic areas and more.

Tucked away on the southeastern side of the lake is a hidden treasure often passed by, the WPA Rock Garden. The 3/4 acre, established 69 years ago, is tended by Daisy Mah. The garden is filled with trees, plants and flowers, most of which are indigenous to California, and features a walking path that winds through the garden. Here are a few photos (more to come later) that I hope you will enjoy enough to make your own special trip to the William Land Park WPA Rock Garden:

Elizabeth, Very Nice! I love the "bee action" on your first pic! I can almost see its wings moving...What kind of camera do you use? I have a Kodak Easyshare and am thinking about upgrading. Thank you.

Hi Elizabeth... what a GORGEOUS looking rock garden.  I'm not sure why, but gardens that feature indigenous plants always have a special personality and feel to them.
