A block away you can find the McHenry Museum, the building that was formerly the city library. The Castle Air Museum on Santa Fe Drive is another interesting place to visit. It currently has over 45 aircrafts on display and will delight anyone with an interest in aviation. The Great Valley Museum of Natural History has great exhibits dealing with Central Valley's plants and animals, and the El Viejo Post Office, built during the Great Depression of the 1930s, offers a glimpse into Modesto's rich history.

The McClatchy Square is a large park that has a famous bronze statue of a paper boy with a dog at his side. It's also the location of the Gallo Rose Garden. Another bronze statue sits in Lucas Plaza at the intersection of Downey, 17th Street, McHenry Avenue, and J Street. It features a couple of 1960s teenagers hanging out by the fender of a '57 Chevy, another homage to the city's "American Graffiti" roots.
