Running along a 23 mile stretch of the American River in Sacramento County, California is The American River Parkway. The Parkway is considered one of the best locations for Sacramento outdoor recreation. The American River Parkway covers over 4,000 acres of land along the American River, the very river where gold was discovered in the 1848 gold rush. Although officially established in 1960, the first Parkway plan was not accepted by Sacramento County until 1962. For many years the Parkway was well loved by the community and many visitors were able to enjoy hiking along the Parkway and other activities. Then unfortunately by the year 2000 the Parkway came up against several different obstacles and by 2004 was on the verge of being closed to the public. Luckily, The American River Park Preservation Society was funded in late 2003 and was able to gather the community together to help save and restore this once beautiful park.
The American River Parkway has been a major destination in Sacramento outdoor recreation for over 50 years. The Parkway is a great sanctuary that visitors to the area won't want to miss and the community members of Sacramento County are committed to continuing the legacy of this beautiful Parkway for generations to come. American River Properties, Inc., a premier RE company in Sacramento located in Fair Oaks, is committed to the preservation and celebration of the The Parkway and takes great pride in representing homeowners and would be homeowners that have made this region home and continue to support the efforts of SARA and other organizations. It is important that people understand that the conservation of the American River Parkway relies on and must continue to be supported by the public. It is also important that people realize that the parkway needs to remain wild for the enjoyment of all future generations to come.
