River Walk Park, located in West Sacramento, creates a grand civic promenade along the urban waterfront on the Sacramento River. Completed in 1999, the park serves many of the City’s redevelopment goals including establishing a sophisticated image for adjacent residential and commercial development. The park provides public access to the Sacramento River with a variety of active and passive spaces including gathering places for civic and cultural events. Restoration of the riparian habitat along the river bank, complete with interpretive signage highlighting existing riverine habitat, round out primary goals for the project.
