East Sacramento

About East Sacramento

East Sacramento is a charming, family-friendly area known for its tree-lined streets and leafy parks. Its many well-kept historic homes define the area, ranging from quaint post-war cottages to luxury estates designed for the city’s movers and shakers in the early part of the 20th century. But there are also plenty of modest starter homes, contemporary townhomes and new construction as well.

East Sacramento (or East Sac as its known by locals) is actually a broad area consisting of several smaller neighborhoods. It borders Midtown Sacramento to the west and includes the canopied Elmhurst to the south. To the north is the modern McKinley Village, while the east includes River Park and the areas surrounding California State University, Sacramento. 

With a quick commute to downtown Sacramento (either via car, bicycle, or public transportation), it’s not surprising that many people priced out of the Bay Area housing market are instead deciding to plant roots in East Sacramento.

But East Sacramento isn’t just a sleepy suburb. It has its own attractions, including world-class restaurants, breweries, shopping, and proximity to outdoor adventures. Following are some of the best things about living in East Sacramento.

McKinley Park is the heart of East Sacramento and a hub of community activity. The Clunie Community Center hosts a number of neighborhood events and houses a branch of the Sacramento Library, known as Clunie Library. The park is also home to the McKinley Rose Garden, a small lake, community pool, several horseshoe pits, baseball fields, soccer fields, and tennis courts. A favorite spot for runners and walkers, the park is also popular for yoga lovers, with a free Saturday morning yoga class held behind the rose garden. Residents of all ages can enjoy centralized entertainment at McKinley Park. The annual event Pops in the Park provides summertime music concerts while on Friday nights rows of food trucks appear as a culinary treat.

East Sacramento’s proximity to freeways, downtown, the Capitol Corridor, and a number of large hospitals make it an ideal location for professionals. Its charm, everyday amenities, and strong sense of community have helped to attract families, retirees, and artists to the area.
