Getting Around American River Parkway
Around American River Parkway
Driving through the area one will see a good number of one-story homes with 1970s architecture on large plots of land. The neighborhood is thick with trees and wide streets, but notably many areas don't have sidewalks. American River Drive is the main thoroughfare, but a good number of offshoot streets produce numerous pockets where people live quite separated from the hustle and bustle, a major draw for a lot of residents. Most of the big venues along the Drive are primary school grounds and related facilities.
Because the neighborhood is predominantly residential, most folks in American River Drive Parkway focus on small gatherings, having BBQs, or enjoying a Friday night at home with family. Those seeking a night out have to venture out of the neighborhood to more active areas in town. Locals will enjoy evening walks during the summer, but for dining or entertainment, many head north on Howe Avenue.
For those living on American River Drive, a great Sunday would be spent at the 302-acre Discovery Park, which has biking trails, fishing piers, and picnic areas. Then, when the evening hour has set in, folks can venture out to Del Paso Boulevard for a quiet dinner before getting ready for the work week.
While American River Drive does have a few residential complexes on its western border, most of the neighborhood is made up of residential homes. Outside the neighborhood going north on Howe Avenue one will find amenities very quickly. And most neighbors use Fair Oaks Boulevard running east-west on the north side of the neighborhood to access commercial benefits or to drive Downtown. Additionally, Interstate 50 travels along the southern border for greater regional access.
Aside from the local plaza on the western side, there is little in the way of restaurants inside the American River Parkway. However, along the outskirts is the Fair Oaks Boulevard commercial zone, including everything from a large grocery store to furniture to fine dining and cafes. Many like to hang out at the multiple plazas during the warm evenings, meet with friends, and relax at the end of the day. A number of premium dining locations exist for special events as well. And there is the normal assortment of fast food restaurants for those on the go.
