Thankful for The American River Parkway

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Without a doubt, one of many blessing I enjoy, is living in close proximity to The American River Parkway. The Parkway begins a couple blocks from home.. This autumn in the Greater Sacramento Region has been one of the more pleasant in memory.  While we are without much needed rain and in the heart of drought, the temperatures have allowed for pleasant more outdoor time. It is my bicycle which often transports me into the Parkway’s natural realm.

The Salmon are making their annual migration up the American River to the Nimbus Fish Hatchery.

The river is quieter in November and December. The raucous activity of fisherman, so prevalent in October, is absent. The Salmon are protected in their migratory run, from November 1st thru December 31st. 

It is a perfect time, for a local resident to introduce her pooch to a first time water adventure.

The scenes below are at the Old Fair Oaks Bridge, near Sunrise Boulevard.  The bridge today is used for pedestrians and bikes only.  It connects the Community of Fair Oaks to GoldRiver/Rancho Cordova.


I take pictures for the purpose of remembering fond times.  I do not impose copyright restrictions on these photos, so you may feel free to use, or distribute as you wish.  However, should you need a Real Estate Professional in the Greater Sacramento area, I hope that you will contact me by email or by visiting my website - Thank You!

Barbara Todaro - It is not unusual to see rafts, kayaks, canoes, and other boats along the river.  It's usually quiet activity however, because motors aren't used.  I make exception for the "Rafting Gone Wild" event which usually occurs in July however.  That's when thousands of raucous rafters show up and party.

Good Morning Myrl Jeffcoat - Oh, what a lovely spot to reflect, watch the dogs learn how to swim and enjoy alone time with their owner, see the beauty of the American River Parkway. It is truly beautiful and that scenery changes daily depending on light, time of day, and who happens to be there! Every day could be a new chapter!

I am missing the fall weather in Sacramento being here in Hawaii, but I am coming home in two days. Waahhhhh. But must do Thanksgiving in Sacramento with Adam and my inlaws who are coming from Chicago. Not to mention, I have a couple of listings to inspect and get ready for market.

You have beautiful photos of the Parkway.
