Friday Night Fun
The neighborhood tends to be on the quieter side. The few nightlife options in River Park are along Elvas Avenue, which has a sports bar and winery. For a livelier Friday night, people tend to venture out of the neighborhood. For dining, people head to Midtown or Downtown. During the summer months, backyard BBQs and evenings spent by the river are popular options.
The Perfect Sunday
Take your kids, dogs, or meet your friends along the levee for a day of outdoor recreation. Many places along Paradise Beach make excellent spots for picnics, wildlife viewing, or tubing down the river. Otherwise, most people enjoy yard work as rolling green lawns are very much a part of living here. It is a quiet neighborhood filled with people who enjoy living life a little slower.
Where to Live
The larger homes in the neighborhood are located along Sandburg Drive. These are the multi-level homes that have private water access and many are perched right on the river banks. Additional single-family homes are found along H Street and the southern end of Sandburg Drive. This area borders Sacramento State University and serves largely as an overflow for student housing. The neighborhood becomes relatively busier along Elvas Avenue as it connects to both Midtown and the Fab 40's.
Where to Eat
River Park has a very limited culinary scene. The surrounding neighborhoods are where you will find quaint delis and restaurants that range from fast food to five-star eateries. Inside River Park is the occasional corner market with a small deli. The Downtown and Midtown neighborhoods are ten minutes by car and offer exotic nightlife and world-class restaurants.
What You'll See
One of the centerpieces of the neighborhood is Paradise Beach, which is part of the American River Parkway. The park is the largest public access point to the American River and serves as a recreational area for joggers, fishermen, and water sports. It is also an iconic example of the expansive green space which is echoed throughout the neighborhood. As a neighborhood that abuts the American River, there are levees which make excellent places for exercise and walking the dogs.
