Capitol Park is a state-owned public park in Maine's state capitol complex on the west side of Augusta, Maine. Set aside in 1827, when the complex was established, the park, set between the Maine State House and the Kennebec River, served as a parade ground and encampment site during the American Civil War, and saw agricultural use before being formally designed as a park in the 1920s by the Olmsted Brothers. The park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.For travelers who use our international travel planner, Augusta holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Capitol Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Capitol Park reviews
Spartan, yet beautiful park with tree lined walking paths. Lots of tables and benches to sit and relax on, all in the shadow of the Capitol building. A wonderful place to stop for a br AK on my way through town.
Peaceful and quiet, cool under the trees. Where the rains had not drained well, they had formed a very shallow pond near us, where ducks played and made us smile. The Maine Vietnam War Memorial stands here, too, somber and solemn.
