River Park Real Estate
Due to this area’s lack of major thoroughfares, River Park is a peaceful little neighborhood, often overlooked, but reveled in by those who have made it home. It is nestled against the American River, bordered by H Street, and in fact has only two entrances.
This family-friendly neighborhood is full of unique features. It boasts one of the most magnificent tree canopies in the city, which is saying a lot if you’ve toured Sacramento’s lush tree-lined streets. According to Sacramento Magazine, the Sacramento Tree Foundation claims River Park has some of the finest trees in Sacramento, especially during the fall.
Comprised mainly of single-story ranch style homes, the neighborhood has two access points to the American River, making fishing, river-side runs, and evening strolls an everyday opportunity. There are also two parks, Glen Hall, which has a baseball field, soccer field, tennis courts, playground and swimming pool; and River Park – home to the neighborhood’s own little league. There’s also the Caleb Elementary School.
River Park is minutes away from Howe Avenue and Fair Oaks Boulevard, as well as Sacramento State. Signature community events, spearheaded by the River Park Neighborhood Association, include a Fourth of July kids’ bicycle parade and festival, Pops in the Park concert, and Screen on the Green movies.
