A relatively new community, Natomas is home to parks and trails, family-friendly eateries and shopping areas, sure to please visitors and locals alike.
If you’re hungry, check out its many taquerias and food trucks or head to the La Superior market along Northgate Boulevard to shop for authentic Mexican foods.
If you’re the outdoorsy type, Discovery Park, one of the region’s largest green spaces, is the perfect place to perch during a hot Sacramento summer day. A part of the American River Parkway, the park offers a variety of recreational activities including boating, picnic areas and wading in the river. It’s also home to the emerald and very Instagram-worthy Jibboom Street Bridge.
In the summer, the 47+ acre North Natomas Regional Park hosts some of the community’s biggest events, including movie nights and farmers markets. The park also offers its own sports fields, bikeways, play areas, water features, and some of the best play areas for both your kiddos and doggos.
Natomas can be accessed directly off Interstate 5 and off Garden Highway.
