Sacramento Parks 

Parks add to the beauty of our city. They are a place where residents and visitors can go to relax, reflect and recreate. In the City of Sacramento there are 223 parks and parkways totaling 4,255.5 acres of land. There are three types of defined parks in Sacramento: Neighborhood, Community, & Regional (see descriptions below). Each category defines the park purpose and amenities that we strive to provide for the community.

2021-2022 Levee Improvement Work (Contract 2)

USACE is planning to construct additional levee seepage improvements in 2021 in the lower Little Pocket, upper Pocket/Greenhaven, and adjacent to Highway 50 at Broadway. It is anticipated that Zacharias Park will be closed for most of 2021. Additionally, a portion of the northern overflow parking lot at Miller Park will be utilized as staging without any impact to boat launch access. The bicycle trail between Broadway up to the south end of the Old Sacramento Promenade will be closed. USACE is planning to award the 2021 levee construction contract in early 2021. Additional details will be available at that time. Pre-construction activities that include the relocation of existing utilities and removing vegetation located directly in the construction footprint is anticipated to occur between December 2020 – April 2021.

Questions or comments regarding the levee construction activity can be directed to USACE at:

Neighborhood parks range in size from 2 to 10 acres, and serve a ½ mile radius. Some Neighborhood Parks are located adjacent to elementary schools and park amenities are usually oriented toward the recreation needs of children.


Community parks range in size from 6 to 60 acres, and serve a 3 mile radius or several neighborhoods.  Community Parks contain amenities found in Neighborhood Parks, but may also contain lighted sports fields or courts, skate parks, dog parks, nature areas, and off-street parking and restrooms. Specialized amenities may also be found in Community Parks including community centers, water play areas or swimming pools.


Regional parks generally range from 75 to 200 acres and serve the entire City and beyond. Amenities in Regional Parks may include all the amenities found in Community Parks and also include sports complexes, large scale picnic areas, golf courses, and region-wide attractions.

If you are planning a picnic, family get-together or office outing in your local park you may need a Picnic Permit.  A Certificate for Park Use is required for any activity with 50 or more people and/or in which assembly is intended to last more than 30 minutes.
