Graceada Park

View Graceada Park Neighborhood in a larger map

The Graceada neighborhood was developed around Graceada park in the early 1900’s. The park was a project by the Women’s Improvement Club (WIC) of Modesto and was named after the two women who donated the land to the City of Modesto, Grace Beard and Ada Wisecarver.

The design of the park was to include natural-looking groves of trees. Trees were very important to the community since the only natural forests in the area were along the rivers. The tallest tree in Modesto can be found at Needham and Sycamore. It is a Bunya Bunya that was planted in 1916 to commemorate a gathering of the Native Sons of the Golden West.

Graceada neighborhood residents enjoy their tree-lined, shady street with historic homes, many registered on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) and the close proximity to the downtown area for a mixed variety of gourmet groceries, the finest restaurants and exciting night clubs. Those long summer days are great for enjoying the live music and community events that residents find popular in Mancini Bowl or to tune-up your tennis game on the courts found in the park.

The area is ideal for families and singles alike with all the amenities living in the metropolis of Modesto has to offer.
