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.

  • The Vietnam Veteran's Memorial is worth a stop, and park was very clean, but there is not much else to see there. Quiet place to take a rest.

  • This time of year, mid October, the park has beautiful fall colors -- lots of reds and oranges -- and it makes spending time in the park even better. I always love the sight of the Capitol building...
