Vallejo's Beer Gardens

Got time to enjoy a nice cool beer on a hot summer day in one of Vallejo's shady beer gardens? One hundred years ago a popular Vallejo gathering spot was Germania Park, shown here in 1895. The park was located on Georgia Street, near present day Wallace and Solano Avenues. The adjacent Cyclodrome was a popular outdoor sports facility. Germania Park was operated by Larry Monreal until about 1915. Another fashionable Vallejo beer garden around the turn of the 20th century was Weniger's Gardens, located on Benicia Road.
