The beautiful Land Park area is surrounded by some of Sacramento's most stately homes.  Built between the twenties and fifties, most are within walking distance of William Land Park, which is home to The Sacramento Zoo, Fairytale Town, and Funderland.  In addition, William Land Park has a nine hole golf course, duck pond, baseball diamonds and children's park with basketball courts and wading pool.  Great schools are abound in the area.  Crocker Riverside Elementary, Califonia Middle School and McClatchy High School are all destination schools for students in the Sacramento City Unified School District.  Sacramento City College is yet another learning institution right in Land Park's backyard.
