  • Went to check out the park and the headwaters of the Sacramento River. Mossy damp park with some Fire Service-esque buildings. Nice area around the spring and benches facing the out toward the stream ...  more »
  • Beautiful fall colors! The water is cold and the air is crisp and expecting the first snowfall tomorrow. Perfect! Excellent place to picnic and bring kids to play.  more »
  • We went everyday to fill our refillable water bottles. I was mesmerized by the opportunity to drink water directly from a spring. The park itself is filled with locals and transients all there to enha...  more »

  • This park is very peaceful. A main attraction of the park is the headwaters of the Sacramento river. It is amazing to see how such tiny streams of water from Mt. Shasta can form a mighty Sacramento River downstream. Feel free to drink water straight from the headwater, it is very pure and tasty. I've seen some people get jugs of it to bring home to drink. I would definitely recommend coming here.
  • Neat place with some lovely spots on the nature trails around the back. People come to see the springs and fill up water bottles. Mother nature is trying to convert parts of the lawn into wetlands, but the city isn't letting it happen, so there's some really muddy places on the lawn.
  • Beautiful place and the freshest tasting water I have ever had. The trail along the back of the headwaters is a beautiful walk. Every thing seemed greener than what we are used to seeing.
  • This place is a piece of heaven! Absolutely beautiful and refreshing. If your passing through or visiting nearby stop by here you will be happy you did.
  • An incredibly beautiful Meadow, with lots of green grass and a beautiful, famous spring-fed stream that edges the whole park. You can cross little bridges and enter a fairyland of horsetail, loveable trees, and running little streamlets. It is a very great place to stop for a bit of fun with children or not. It does have a few little swings that are fantastic and a little climbing structure. Perfect, easily accessible picnic spot. This Park is literally 1 minute from I-5 but it puts you in a totally natural space quite quickly and so it makes a superb destination.
