Lovely, serene place with a wide bike trail and narrower walking paths. We saw some deer in a meadow, not at all worried about our presence. We had a stroller and it was easy enough to stay on paved paths, and we were mindful to stay out of the way of bicyclists (who were riding quite fast- but that's cool not complaining) but we want to go back with backpacks to check out some of the more rugged looking off shoot trails.

This is a great long walk (not a "hike") on pavement, with lots of trees for shade and grassy areas if you prefer to walk on that. There are over-passes ie small hills to climb. If you walk with dogs, note it can be fairly dog-crowded, and there are squirrels! There are trash cans in very frequent intervals.

Great park. A very gorgeous rose garden inside the park. There's a small pond with lots of water birds.

As said previously, paved trail in a park around a little lake. Lots of geese poop. Not very scenic, but fine for a quick walk. The dog park looks really nice.

Great spot. We like to ride bikes from park to park in a loop beginning at Curtis Park and ending at Southside.

We are so blessed to live near this parkway. We walk it several days per week and it’s so lovely and the other walkers are very friendly. A wonderful neighborhood gem!

If you take your dog some joggers don't have their dogs on leashes fyi. Some overgrowth on trail and fallen branches may create an obstacle you have to jump over but overall a great trail.

Beautiful day for a walk along the river. Bikers and other walkers/joggers very courteous. Sharing the wide trail is comfortable.

Get flat run minus the 3 overpasses. About 6.5 round trip. Beautiful parks and the people are always willing to give a wave. Dog friendly.

It’s a paved trail, easy run. There are about 100-200 meters of birds poop near the pond. There would be sprinklers near the pond at about 5:30am to 6:00am. It’s better to run past 6:00 am when it’s not too hot, some of the poop are washed out and there are no geese around. Around sunset and in the afternoon, you’d encounter geese that could bite and run after you. It’s warm in the afternoon. I feel safe running here. When you park inside the south parking lot, remember that the gates close in the dusk. I was lock out once, have to wait till morning to get my car out. There are bathrooms and water fountains near the parking lot.

I don't know why the description says it's near Elverta, I take my dog here occasionally for walks when I want to be close to home, early mornings or if it's not hot. It's mostly a sidewalk to go around the loop, near main streets and shopping in Natomas, CA. Lots of people on the weekend and at night due to the playground and dog park. I gave only 3 stars because it's horrible in the summer due to NO SHADE. I would hardly call it a bird watching place or nature trip considering it's in the middle of a shopping area, next to a high school in the city. Should watch for events that are going on as they often have community events here. Clean. Never had a problem parking. Occasional bicyclists Has a covered picnic table area but it's always in use and right next to the playground. It's not a hike in any way, just a casual, easy walk.

Good place for a quick hike. In fact, if you work in the Downtown Sacramento area, this is a great place to walk for one’s lunch break.

Very cool path along the riverbank. Easy to follow dirt path, well worn, pleasant wildlife noises and very few people. Rolling path in places, random benches along the way. Shaded by trees most of the way. Bathrooms at both ends of the walk. Perfect for the cardio workout we wanted today. 6.6 miles total.

Very nicely done by the city of Sacramento! Maybe a 3+ but too flat and too little to see for anything higher. Did see what looked like a Peregrine Falcon but a Falcon for sure and not a hawk. Two miles of sidewalk through at least 3 city parks and a couple of schools. Clean and well taken care of... No homeless like Modesto and Manteca. Connects up with other trails on both ends...

I live down the street and I love this park. The running track is easy on my shin splints. The rose garden is beautiful and on the weekends there are often craft shows or garden shows at the show hall. There is a basketball and tennis court, a play ground, and a swimming pool. Lots of trees and I’ve seen that a fairy lives in one of them. (Great for kids) I wouldn’t recommend riding your bike here, unless your a kid. On the weekends there are yoga people and prayer circles and parties and drumming circles. It’s just amazing. In the evenings there are a lot of fitness camps and people doing boot camps. There are tennis courts and a beautiful revamped duck pond. (Don’t feed them bread says the signs) Lots of people like to bring their dogs and there is a gated dog park a few blocks away over the levee. Lots of benches and picnic tables! Parking can be a pain in the butt, but there are some spaces, carpool if you can. There is also a library!
