Wonderful place to go for a picnic style lunch. Beautiful landscaping and fountain. Lots of interesting statues, and tales of a Vampire that lived under one of the statues.

Capitol Square Park, as you might suspect, is impeccably manicured. The buildings are a bit overstated, but, after all, it is Capitol Square. Quiet on the weekends, it's a good place to go when nothing else is happening and you need a few minutes off...More
