Park houses the Fischer-Hanlon house and the one time California State Capitol building.
Very nice tour. Perfect for non-Californians wanting to learn more about early history of State. Some original desks.

Whether you want a nice walk or you want to go fishing, the natural scenery is beautiful. Views of the Carquinea Straits abound!

My husband and I saw salmon being unloaded off a truck a few years ago by the Fish and Game. What a sight! We are lucky to have this boat launch and the playground that makes this area a neighborhood park.
