The State Capitol Park World Peace Rose Garden is very popular – particularly when the roses are in bloom. At that time of year, when I worked in Downtown Sacramento prior to retiring, I sometimes took a detour between a meeting in the State Capitol and returning to the office for a brief respite and to enjoy the beauty of Sacramento’s very own World Peace Rose Garden. When I did, I observed many other individuals also strolling along the walkways admiring the different colors – and taking the time to “smell the roses”. Photo taking is also a very popular pastime at that time of year.
The State Capitol Park World Peace Rose Garden was created by TJ David and Sylvia Villalobos, and it features approximately 650 roses – 140+ varieties of colors and fragrances. In the center is a small courtyard with a fountain and a Peace Pavilion.
Benches are scattered throughout – so that you can also sit while you take the time to admire the view.
As you stroll around the State Capitol Park World Peace Rose Garden keep an eye out for the 40+ plaques placed throughout with inspirational messages of peace.
