Mt. Shasta City Park is one of two really nice city parks in Mt. Shasta; Shastice Park being the other.  The park features a couple of playgrounds, plenty of picnic tables, a walking trail, lots of grass area to throw or kick a ball, toss a frisbee or just relax.  
This 26-acre park is also home to the Sacramento River Headwaters; a unique attraction worth a visit.
