Neighborhood Spotlight: Arden Park

Arden Park is a wonderful Sacramento neighborhood bound by Watt Avenue to the west, Eastern Avenue to the east, Arden Way to the North, and Fair Oaks Blvd to the south.

A quick commute to downtown Sacramento, Arden Park is a highly sought neighborhood known for its close proximity to award-winning public schools, tree-lined streets, long-term residents, large lots, and well, its parks. The majority of the homes there were constructed in the 1950's era.

Nearby schools include Mariemont Elementary School, Arden Middle School, and Rio Americano High School.

There are two parks in the community - La Sierra Park (located in the middle of the neighborhood on La Sierra Drive), and Cresta Park (at the center of three streets - Las Cruces Drive, Esperanza Drive, and Cresta Way). La Sierra Park is home to the Arden Park Parks and Recreation Facility.

Arden Park is home to many community events, such as Easter Egg hunts, Soccer, 4th of July parades, Concerts in the Park, and more. Their neighborhood association is very committed to preserving the atmosphere of the neighborhood, and have formed many groups to promote community interests, such as the Arden Park Tree Foundation, Arden Park Neighborhood Preservation Area, Arden Park Homeowner's Association, etc.

Real estate prices in the neighborhood generally range from $400,000 on the low end to upward of $2,000,000.
