City of Sacramento completes all installations on its free Wi-Fi in the Parks program

The City of Sacramento recently completed its final installations on its Wi-Fi in the Parks program, bringing the total to 27 City parks offering free internet access.

Part of the City’s public/private partnership with Verizon, the free Wi-Fi is only available during the parks’ hours of operation, which run from sunrise to sunset daily.

“At a time when access to reliable internet is more important than ever, I am glad the City was able to make this invaluable resource to our residents,” said Project Manager Natasha Greer. “These parks will help remove barriers and close the digital divide in our communities for people to more easily access work, school and life.”

To access the Wi-Fi, park visitors need to select “CITY-PARK-FREE-WIFI” as their network on their mobile devices. Once they agree to the terms and conditions, they will be connected to the internet. The Wi-Fi service relies on standard internet equipment and does not use 5G.

Free Wi-Fi is now available at these City of Sacramento parks:

  1. Fremont Park
  2. Brooks Truitt Bark Park
  3. Bill Conlin Sports Complex
  4. Carl Johnston Park
  5. Cabrillo Park
  6. Kokomo Park
  7. Tahoe Park
  8. South Natomas Park
  9. Coloma Park
  10. Southside Park
  11. Garcia Bend Park
  12. Robertson Park
  13. Pannell/Meadowview Park
  14. George Sim Park

  22. Hagginwood Park
  23. McClatchy Park
  24. Lewis Park
  25. North Laguna Creek Park
  26. Sutter’s Landing Park
  27. William Land Park

Fremont Park in October 2019 became the first City park to offer free Wi-Fi as part of the program. A section of William Land Park marked the final installation.

As part of its commitment to innovation, the City of Sacramento entered into a public/private partnership with Verizon in 2017.

In addition to bringing free Wi-Fi to 27 parks across the city, the partnership facilitates the deployment of 5G mobile networks for homes and businesses and provides tools to better manage traffic and make streets safer for cyclists, pedestrians and drivers.
