Cesar Chavez Park

Cesar Chavez Park sits in the middle of the expanding metropolis of Sacramento, California. Located in the heart of the City on J Street, Chavez Park provides some greenery and a place to relax in the center of California’s Capital city. Named after the famed immigrant labor leader, Cesar Chavez Park is a fitting memorial to the man who stood and fought with immigrant workers as Cesar Chavez Park provides workers of all backgrounds a place to relax and play.

The Park Itself

Cesar Chavez Park is 2.5 acres of land in the middle of Sacramento. The original park and site was first constructed over 100 years ago but was under utilized and run down. In the 1990s, as part of Downtown revitalization efforts, the park was redesigned and redone to attract lunch crowds and shoppers to a neglected city block. The City decided to rename the Park after Cesar Chavez and added a large and beautiful statute of the farm worker leader as the main focal point of the Park. The Park also features a spectacular water fountain, a café, plenty of trees and picnic tables. Chavez Park is a quiet and relaxing place to grab a quick bite to eat or sit on the grass and read a book.
