Welcome to River Park and Our Community’s Website
River Park Emergency Alert System
Measured by public amenities and quality of life, River Park is one of Sacramento’s finest neighborhoods.
River Park is special in part because of the way it is situated: bordered by H Street on the south, the American River on the north and east, and the Southern Pacific Railroad on the west. It features two public accesses to the American River, two renowned parks, a thick canopy of old-growth and new-growth trees, abundant wildlife among a large riverside habitat, an exemplary K-8 school, easy access to Sacramento State University, and several supportive businesses.
Services at the Carlson Drive shopping center include an Italian restaurant, Chinese restaurant, market, barber shop, beauty salon, dry cleaning, dentist, and pet grooming.
River Park’s residents are generally a mix of established and newcomers. Many of our neighborhood’s 1700 households are still occupied by original homeowners who moved here in the 1950s and 60s. River Park is also an increasingly attractive neighborhood to young families who are interested in good schools and proximity to urban work centers.
River Park has several very active clubs and organizations that promote a high quality lifestyle and community spirit, including the Mothers Club, Garden Club, and the River Park Neighborhood Association (RPNA).
Annual events sponsored by the RPNA include two community meetings, Fourth of July parade and festival, Pops in the Park concert, Great American River Clean-Up, Screen
on the Green viewing, and a neighborhood picnic.
In recognition of the abundant amenities and thriving community, River Park was recently recognized by Sacramento Magazine as one of the best neighborhoods in Sacramento.
