Fall on the river under continuing low flow conditions
Sutter’s Landing Park is a natural treasure in the heart of Sacramento. It serves as a historic gateway to the 31.5-mile American River Parkway, which enjoys more than 8 million visitor days per year—more than Yosemite National Park! Friends of Sutter's Landing Park has created a vision offers a unique opportunity to enhance the quality of life of residents today and for future generations. The park could become a legacy project for the City of Sacramento, enriching the livability of our city and making it a destination for families, nature-lovers, and outdoor recreation enthusiasts.
Sutter’s Landing could be a nature park in the middle of the central city, providing habitat for wildlife, as well as great access to trails along the American River for people. There exists an opportunity to add to the current park by adding to and widening the corridor along the river that supports wildlife, by expanding access for people to enjoy this resource through additional nature trails, and by helping inspire children and their families through increasing opportunities to learn about science, nature, and the history of this important site.
