Land Park and Curtis Park are pleasant, shady, older neighborhoods very close to downtown Sacramento.

Most of the homes in Curtis Park date back to the 1920s. Many have been remodeled and updated.

Curtis Park has a large neighborhood park with tennis courts, a baseball diamond and basketball court. A footpath borders the park, providing room for joggers, walkers and dog fanciers. The neighborhood is served by a community center that includes a small auditorium, where live entertainment is performed.

Land Park is nearby and has access to an even larger park with a nine-hole golf course, the Sacramento Zoo and Fairytale Town, a facility aimed at younger children.

Homes in Land Park were built from the 1920s through the 1940s and offer some fine examples of architecture of those decades.

Both neighborhoods have good access to freeways, although there are a number of residents who bicycle, walk or take public transit to work downtown. Shopping is handy, with regional shopping centers nearby.
