“Beautiful Gardens in the city center!”

Within the boundaries of the State Capitol State Park exist hundreds of varieties of trees, shrubs and flowers providing a dazzling display for all seasons. Brochures available in the Capitol. The park features not only cherry trees and other plants favored by Oregonians, but tells a little history as well. Stone plaques set in the mall sidewalks list the county seat and establishment date for each of Oregon's counties. On the Willson Park side of the street, flags from every state in the union sit in a circle near the Moon Tree, a state heritage tree. The young Douglas-fir, just north of the flags along Court Street, was grown from a seed carried to the moon by Apollo 14 astronaut Stuart Roosa in 1971.

As far as capitol buildings go it's not that interesting. The best part of the tour is climbing the tower and seeing the gold leaf statue. The surrounding grounds are beautiful.
