3349 West Curtis Dr., Sacramento, CA 95818
A short walk east from its more renowned neighborhood, William Land Park, this quiet piece of natural territory is a welcome respite from noise and crowds. Not much wider than a soccer field, this long park runs about 10 blocks in length and features facilities for such popular activities as tennis, baseball, basketball, and volleyball. Local residents walk their dogs, jog, or just relax on benches along unpaved paths. Although there is only a chemical toilet, hardy urban pioneers will appreciate the solitude.
