About South Natomas

Settled six miles north of Sacramento, the South Natomas neighborhood is a popular choice for many newcomers to the city. The neighborhood's largest period of expansion was back in the 1970s, so this is a relatively well-established area. Filled with mature, majestic trees and meticulous lawns bordered by white picket fences, South Natomas is a charming place to call home. Bordered by I-80 to the north and I-5 to the west, South Natomas, unlike many other Sacramento neighborhoods, still has undeveloped spaces and has preserved many natural areas serving as parks and recreational spots, like the 302-acre Discovery Park, which provides access the scenic American River winding through Sacramento.
